360 Feedback

360 Feedback is an appraisal system that gathers feedback on an individual from a number of sources including colleagues, direct reports  and customers. Its gives broader more balanced information on skills, performance and working relationships. Typically 8-10 people, including the individual themselves complete questionnaires describing performance. The questionnaire includes a number of work related statements rated on a scale. The responses are summarised into a report and typically the whole process is anonymous with feedback presented to the recipient by a skilled coach.
