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 360 Degree feedback measure?

A 360 degree 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, 360 degree feedback 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.
