They were required to rate their performance from 1 to 5 with 1 being highly unsatisfactory and 5 being highly satisfactory. Based on the ratings obtained, it can be observed that there are several inactive members in each department and strategies to engage them would be identified.

Peer review was also obtained from members to enable members to know what their peers think of them in terms of their strengths and weaknesses. Besides, the member’s quarterly feedback was carried out and the report from the feedback obtained can be found here.
