<p>By making a small step for your company and switching from manual performance reviews to ReviewSNAP, a Web-based performance management system, you are making a large contribution to the world&rsquo;s green initiatives.<br /><br />Since the environmental or &ldquo;green&rdquo; push started in the 1990s, organizations have been taking steps to decrease their carbon footprints. </p><p>Today, the momentum has not slowed and is viewed by many to be a valuable initiative. ReviewSNAP, a Web-based performance management system, provides organizations a way to make their employee-appraisal processes more environmentally friendly by making their reviews paperless.<br /><br />&ldquo;Having a Web-based performance system is an easy and small step organizations can do for the environment at a reasonable cost,&rdquo; said Dave Arringdale. &ldquo;While employee performance reviews are just one part of an organization&rsquo;s paper output, it&rsquo;s a step towards making a positive impact on the environment.&rdquo;<br /><br />Studies show that one tree makes 16.67 reams of copy paper, or 8,333 sheets. Also, the production of 1 ton of copy paper produces 19,075 gallons of waste water; 2,278 pounds of solid waste; and 5,690 pounds of greenhouse gases (the equivalent of six months of car exhaust). In 2004, the United States used 8 million tons of office paper (3.2 billion reams) &mdash; the equivalent of 178 million trees.<br /><br />In addition to saving paper resources, having a Web-based performance system allows users to give more accurate and dynamic employee performance reviews. ReviewSNAP allows users access to the system from anywhere with Internet capabilities and allows users to create as many review periods as needed to provide an effective overall review. <br /><br />These two capabilities make it easier to have more review cycles rather than waiting for an annual review and encourages managers and raters to log information about the employee being reviewed at any time.<br /><br />ReviewSNAP also has the ability to have real-time updates to goals, feedback and reviews. If feedback is given on an employee or the employee&rsquo;s goals are changed anytime throughout the review period, the employee&rsquo;s file is updated in real time and can be viewed right away by the rater/reviewer. </p><p>Also, this allows reviewers to keep track of an employee&rsquo;s progress in meeting his or her goals by keeping an ongoing record and adding feedback at any time during the review period.<br /><br />A free, 21-day trial of ReviewSNAP is available.<br /></p>
