360 Assessments and Reviews for Employees, Managers and Senior Executives
360 degree assessments and reviews are powerful tools for helping individuals improve, grow and develop their interpersonal skills. Our assessments gather information from several people about an individual’s performance as seen by his/her boss, self, peers, direct reports and customers. Traditional performance evaluations are subjective and one-sided. Most traditional evaluation systems are ineffective in providing honest and objective feedback.
A better way is the 360 degree feedback assessment process. No matter what position you hold in a company, it is important to understand how others (boss, team, peers and customers) perceive your effectiveness as a leader–strengths and weaknesses. 360 feedback input from supervisors, co-workers, clients and direct reports is valuable in improving organizational and individual performance.
Personalized Approach and Assistance
Many organizations choose us to conduct 360 assessments on their senior level managers and executives. As an option, we can provide both personal coaching and/or a debriefing to the rated individual. We will assist the rated individual in developing an action plan in a confidential and professional manner.
Key Aspects of a 360 Feedback Assessment Process
We conduct individual 360 assessments. You can choose either a standardized 360 assessment or we can customize it to your exact specifications. The standardized assessment consists of approximately 60 questions. The assessment is conducted via the Internet and we provide you a final report with these key features:
Is 360 Degree Feedback Better Than Traditional Evaluations?
Studies show 360 degree feedback assessments can have a positive economic impact when used for leadership development. A study by J. Folkman showed the relationship between turnover and leadership effectiveness. He showed effective leaders have lower turnover of employees under them. Another study showed performance-based assessments and development can result in a 6 standard deviation improvement in employee performance, yielding a return on investment as high as 700%
How Does the 360 Review Process Work?
The process is simple. We provide you a secure webpage where the questions are listed. The rated individual scores him/herself, along with their boss, peer group and direct reports. After all scorings are received, we provide you and the rated individual a printed report or access to a webpage listing the ratings summary.
