More about 360 degree feedback and Focal 360...
What is 360 Degree Feedback?
360 Degree Feedback is a process where employees receive feedback from their managers, peers, and direct reports. Employees also complete a self evaluation as part of the 360 feedback process. 360 Feedback is often used as part of a performance evaluation or performance appraisal process, but it is ideally used for developmental purposes only. Many companies try to use 360 Degree Feedback for both performance evaluations and development, but this is tricky since it sends a mixed message to employees. Nevertheless, this is often the practical reality that organizations face.
Who should receive 360 Degree Feedback?
360 Feedback is most commonly used to get feedback on managers and leaders in an organization, but some companies also include non-managers (individual contributors) in the 360 feedback process. When 360 feedback is conducted at different levels, it usually makes sense to use different 360 survey templates for company leadership, managers, and non-managers. The competencies, behaviors, and skills that are needed at each level are different, so the 360 evaluation form should be designed to measure the things that that are relevant to each person's level. We have provided some sample 360 feedback survey questions for different levels so you can see how this typically works.
What are the benefits of 360 Feedback?
When used as a development tool, 360 degree feedback offers a number of benefits, including increased self awareness, identification of potential problem areas and gaps in perception (blind spots, disagreements, hidden strengths and weaknesses, etc.), professional development, and increased communication and openness among employees.
