360 Degree Feedback – Get the Views of Those Around You


360 degree feedback is an ideal tool for improving staff appraisals and encouraging individual development. It allows views to be obtained from different sources at all levels in your organisation rather than just the traditional top-down feedback method (hence the term ‘360 degree feedback’).

Our online 360 degree feedback tool, Performance 360, gives a more comprehensive review of performance from all angles – managers, peers, direct reports and/or customers – giving staff a more rounded view of their strengths and weaknesses for development. In the style of a questionnaire, Performance 360 asks each respondent the same set of questions about a person’s performance. Questionnaires generally include rated-scale questions, and free text answers where the respondent can leave comments.

Benefits of a 360 Degree Feedback tool

Whether you’re striving for individual improvement, team development or organisational growth, a well-run 360 degree feedback tool such as Performance 360 can provide enormous benefits for both the individuals taking part as well as their employer. Performance 360 can be beneficial in two main scenarios- as part of staff appraisals, or as part of a learning and development programme.

For the individual, it is an unbiased way to discover how you are thought of by colleagues from a 360 degree perspective and compare it to your self-perception to understand where differences in opinion may lie.

For companies, it demonstrates commitment to develop staff through appraisals and reinforces the link between competency and behaviour. It also offers a transparent and fair process that encourages honest 360 assessment.

What Does Performance 360 Measure?

In the style of a questionnaire, a Performance 360 survey poses a consistent set of questions about the person’s performance to each respondent in order to collate a list of strengths and weaknesses that can be used for the individuals’ development. Most questionnaires are based on a set of competencies or behaviours defined by you and the questions measure how well the person performs in those areas.

The online feedback is both anonymous and confidential.
