360 Feedback

360 feedback is a process in which employees receive feedback from the people who work with them closely, including the employees’ supervisors, peers and direct reports (also known as raters). 360 degree feedback requires the raters to rate the employee on a wide range of workplace competencies. The employee obtaining 360 feedback also fills out a self-rating questionnaire that contains similar survey questions that others get in their forms. 360 feedback is used to make important decisions regarding training, development, upskilling, and promotions.

The 360 degree feedback is an exercise through which an employee receives inputs on their skills and competencies from multiple stakeholders with whom an employee has a working relationship. 360 feedback covers a wider gamut than just performance evaluation. The objective of 360 feedback is to offer a wider focus and help gauge not just apparent but also the employees’ hidden strengths and weaknesses. 360 degree feedback helps employees through focused development plans and places them in the right direction to contribute better toward achieving organizational goals, ultimately benefitting all the stakeholders.
