How does your company handle performance management? Utilizing 360 Degree Feedback is the most efficient method to gather feedback on performance at the supervisory level. A 360 degree appraisal entails interviews with the employee, his supervisor, and his subordinates. Some organizations include feedback from customers as well. The employee’s feedback reflects the personal view of how he completed assignments, achievements, and areas for development. The supervisors will give feedback on how the employee executed the duties, including proficiency, initiative, supervisory skills, time management, and delegation. The supervisor will also highlight areas for improvement and a plan to address these deficiencies. Subordinates rate the employee’s ability to supervise and communicate; and share areas for improvement. Therefore, the 360 appraisal provides feedback from various angles to an employee. With everyone’s involvement in performance management, you create an atmosphere of openness and efficient communication.
