What is a 360 Degree Review ?

A 360 degree review is a professional feedback process where an employee receives confidential, anonymous feedback from the people who work around them. Assessments are typically completed by the employee’s manager, peers and direct reports, as well as a self-assessment.

Benefits of using a 360 Degree Review

360° assessments have proven to be an extremely valuable source of performance data to assist in management development, succession planning, and career planning. They provide insight into areas of strength and areas for improvement by detailing self-perceptions and the perceptions of others. In short, they provide data to make better decisions.

How TalentClick’s 360 Degree Review process works

TalentClick’s 360 is a comprehensive multi-rater assessment that measures the behaviors linked to key management competencies, including the following:

  • Leadership
  • Accountability
  • Managerial Courage
  • People Management
  • Empowering Others
  • Developing Others
  • Conflict Management
  • Teamwork
  • Change Management
  • Commitment
  • Initiative

Through a simple online process, participants rate themselves and are rated by co-workers with an questionnaire, which lists behaviors linked to the management competencies. The online questionnaires take 10-15 minutes to complete. Optional open-ended text questions can be added to the questionnaire if desired.

The results are then presented in three ways: Self rating, rater’s average and organizational average. By compiling and analyzing the ratings for each participant, we produce a detailed report, outlining his/her strengths and areas for development within the management competencies framework. The detailed report also provides insight by allowing for comparisons between the participant’s self-ratings how the participant is rated by others.

Gaps between one’s self-rating scores and the rater’s average scores on a certain competency indicate the differences between one’s perception of self and the raters’ perception of the individual in this area. Gaps between the raters’ averages and the organizational averages on a certain competency indicate how the raters’ assessment of an individual compares to the average score of all the people within the organization who have undergone the assessment.
