360 Degree Feedback
Providing balanced and constructive feedback from colleagues
What is 360 Degree Feedback?
360 degree feedback is the process of providing formal constructive feedback on a periodic basis, which is balanced and rounded by engaging the views of a wider audience.
360-degree feedback can be hugely powerful and insightful for those organisations ready to embrace this approach. A successful process heavily depends on the maturity and culture of your organisation. If you want to truly gauge and appraise an employee’s performance, then it is important to get a wider and balanced perspective.
This can be achieved through a wider view of their performance, by taking input from a range of people they interact with, for example:
A personal view
People who report to them
People who work with them
The person they report into
Someone internal or external
360-degree feedback is used predominantly for senior roles in large organisations, but can also be adopted more widely where it adds value.
Engaging constructive wider feedback provides a more balanced and broader perspective. This more accurately and fairly assesses a person’s performance, and will reduce the influence of any subjective inputs such as favouritism and prejudices, etc.
