Comprehensive Appraisal System
360-degree feedback is a comprehensive appraisal system that provides employees with feedback from people all around them in the organizational hierarchy: supervisors, co-workers and subordinates all contribute their input on the employees performance and behavior.
This type of appraisal produces a number of distinct benefits such as
- Helping employees gain a more thorough understanding of their impact on people they interact with daily
- Fostering an environment of teamwork and trust by clarifying expectations
- Offering enhanced job satisfaction and loyalty by providing employees with a tool to effect positive change in their workplace
360 surveys allow employees to assess strengths and weakness in their workplace performance, interpersonal communication and/or management style with a focus on individual and organizational development.
Managers and executives can use the information provided by a 360 survey to create organizational and individual development plans. Managers and executives also gain tremendous personal benefit as they see how their leadership styles and methods are perceived by those they manage. As they make adjustments to better interact with and manage their employees, the entire organization benefits from the improvement to productivity.
We use 360 surveys with our executive clients to measure success and sustainability. We can also help guide you or your company through the steps of pre-planning, survey-setup, implementation and aftercare for your own performance review process. Our 360 partners have ready-made 360 surveys for leadership, skill sets, teams, plus organizational surveys.
