360 Degree Feedback – Ever Heard Of It?

What in the world is 360 degree feedback? Well, it’s one of the tools that performance management consultants use to help organizations improve.

This “tool” works by providing full-circle feedback. That is, it gives an individual a “big picture” evaluation of his/her work skills by combining the evaluations of people who have observed his/her work, such as managers, direct reports, peers, and clients.

These types of evaluations also work well because 360 degree feedback represents a comprehensive set of researched, observable behaviors that relate to important areas of workplace performance. This specific data helps individuals and groups target specific areas for improvement.

People and the organizations they serve say 360 degree feedback is revealing, accurate, and useful. This type of feedback is powerful when it is applied to all individuals in an organization. The company can then focus on increasing performance.
