What you need to know about 360 degree feedback.
360 Degree Feedback is an assessment and development tool that gathers feedback from multiple sources that know and work closely with an individual or group. They are used to increase the validity of feedback as well as offer a more realistic view of someone’s skills, abilities and other performance-related attributes.
Whether it be an employee, team or leader, people need to know how they are performing and made aware of any areas in need of development. 360 Degree Feedback plays a pivotal role in providing that feedback in a structured way that minimises bias.
Without this, individuals can lack self-awareness, miss important development opportunities and might find aspects of their job difficult, which could affect their relationships with others, their own performance and job satisfaction.
