360-Degree Feedback

A 360-degree feedback tool is the solution when it comes to comprehensive and successful development of your employees. In a modern corporate culture, the individual development of employees is a central success factor for both the workforce and the company. 


360-Degree Feedback Tool with HRinstruments

Thanks to the comprehensive perspective of a 360-degree feedback tool, you can identify improvement opportunities, nurture talent, and recognize and develop the true potential of individual employees. 

Possible Process of a 360-Degree Feedback

1. Prepare the Questionnaire

Using the intuitive template editor, the HR department crafts the questionnaire and tailors it to the company’s branding guidelines. 

2. Launch the 360-Degree Tool

Employees can initiate their 360-degree feedback process independently. They simply set up organizational data in the system beforehand, which automatically pre-fills feedback providers. Then, they select the survey period and begin. 

3. Gather 360-Degree Feedback

Initially, invitations with participation links are automatically dispatched. Throughout the feedback process, automatic reminders can be sent, and adjustments can be made to participants and the survey period as needed. 

4. Analyze the 360-Degree Feedback

In the individually configurable dashboard, for example, the response rate can be viewed in real-time. Once the survey period for the 360-degree feedback is over, a PDF report is made available to the feedback recipient and optionally their supervisor.

4. Follow-up Procedures

After the 360-degree feedback process is complete and valuable insights are obtained, we offer guidance on developing follow-up procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions about 360-Degree Feedback

360-degree feedback is a method of gathering feedback from various perspectives to obtain a comprehensive picture of an employee. It involves colleagues, supervisors, employees, and possibly customers to provide diverse viewpoints. The aim is to gain a better understanding of strengths and areas for development and initiate targeted actions for improvement. 360 degree feedback supports personal development, self-reflection, and continuous growth in professional environments. 

In general, the use of a 360-degree feedback tool is beneficial whenever a broader and more objective assessment of an employee’s performance, behavior, and skills is required to foster individual growth, teamwork, and organizational effectiveness. 

This depends on the specific needs of the company, and the application scenarios are diverse. Some of our clients focus on the development of their leaders using 360-degree feedback to gain a comprehensive understanding of leadership qualities. The tool enables them to enhance their leadership strengths and identify areas for further development to increase their effectiveness. Others use it additionally for performance evaluation or to measure cultural change within the company. 

In 90-degree feedback, employees receive feedback from only one direction, typically from direct supervisors. This approach primarily focuses on feedback from a single authority figure, providing a relatively limited perspective on an individual’s performance and skills. 

In 180-degree feedback, employees receive feedback from two main sources, usually from direct supervisors and colleagues. This approach broadens the perspective by including feedback from more than one source, primarily focusing on relationships and collaboration within the work environment. 

In 270-degree feedback, feedback providers from three main sources are included, typically from direct supervisors, colleagues, and employees. This approach offers a more comprehensive perspective by incorporating feedback from different levels and functions within the organization, allowing for a more holistic assessment of an individual’s performance and behavior.
