360° assessments are a performance review process that focuses on evaluating an employee’s performance in order to identify their key strengths and weaknesses and in turn, drive organizational-wide growth.
The 360° assessment typically consists of four roles:
Subject: The employee who is being evaluated.
Evaluator: Peers & co-workers that are nominated by the Subject.
Approver: Usually the Manager.
Admin: The HR admin of the Organization.
The admin uses a 360 feedback tool to share the assessment to all the relevant individuals within the organization(managers, reportees, and peers) and gather their feedback(can be anonymous, if needed).
They then use the software’s reporting module to analyze the inputs and create a 360 feedback report that highlights the subject’s strengths and weaknesses and includes a personalized growth plan.
The report is shared with the subject and leads to a discussion between them and the HR admin for further clarifications on their growth plan.
Subjects who have fared exceptionally well are given recognition for the same.
