What assessment methodology is used?
360-degree feedback (also known as multi-rater feedback, multi-source feedback, or multi-source assessment) is a process through which feedback from an employee's subordinates, colleagues, and supervisor(s), as well as a self-evaluation by the employee themselves, are gathered.
360-degree feedback is so named because it solicits feedback regarding an employee's behavior from a variety of points of view (subordinate, peers, and supervisory).
Although multi-sourced, not all feedback has equal weight. Feedback from direct superiors usually has the greater weight while self-evaluation has the least.
If implemented properly, the 360-degree evaluation method becomes a valuable management tool enabling companies to achieve higher levels of growth.
