360° Assessment


The 360 degree assessment is a tool that provides each employee the opportunity to receive performance feedback from his or her supervisor as well as peers, reporting staff members, coworkers and customers. In fact, anyone who has useful information on how the employee does the job may be asked to participate in providing 360 degree feedback. Most 360 degree feedback assessments also allow the individual to respond in a self-assessment. The purpose of the 360 degree feedback is to assist each employee to understand his or her strengths and weaknesses and to contribute insights into aspects of his or her work needing professional development. Additionally, the employee receives a broader perspective of how they are perceived by others and views the feedback as more valid and objective, leading to greater acceptance of results of the evaluation.The results of the assessment are often used by the manager to plan employee training and development as well as support pay-for-performance decisions.
