“Traditional appraisal feedback is typically top down, whereas Performance 360 as a 360 degree feedback tool allows other members of staff to express their feelings too.”

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.

The online feedback is both anonymous and confidential.

What Is 360 Degree Feedback?

360 degree feedback is a method of performance appraisal allowing employees to receive feedback from those who work not only in their own team, but also in the working environment around them. Our 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.

What Does Performance 360 Measure?

A 360 appraisal can give valuable insight into a range of measures that employees can benchmark against their self-perception. These include behaviours & competencies, perception of others, character, the ability to be a team player and leadership effectiveness.

In the style of a questionnaire, a Performance 360 survey poses a consistent set of questions (rated-scale questions, and free text answers where the respondent can leave comments) about the person’s performance to each respondent in order to collate a list of strengths and weaknesses. 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.
