360 Degree Feedback

What is 360-Degree Feedback?

360 Degree feedback systems incorporate multiple perspectives (perceptions and insights) by using feedback from a variety of sources. These sources include peers, subordinates, customers, self, supervisor, and others.

This feedback us usually anonymous and comes from the employees and others who work with this person. Usually a group of about 8 to 16 individuals are selected to provide feedback by completing a survey questionnaire. These surveys are easily administered via the Internet.

This feedback provides an opportunity for individuals to see how their work and job performance is viewed by others. This feedback can be used for employee (professional) development. This process is often used for developmental purposes. Although, it is possible to combine 360-Degree Feedback with Performance Management Systems.

Tip: Using a 3rd Party Vendor helps ensure confidentiality of the process.
