360 Feedback: The BEST Performance Review System Top Companies Use

  • The goal of 360 feedback is to generate as holistic and fair a picture of employee performance as possible.
  • It does this by getting feedback from all directions:
    • Within (yourself)
    • Above (your manager)
    • Below (your reports if you are a manager)
    • Laterally (your teammates)
  • This system prevents employee performance from reducing down to sucking up to the manager, which is the case in more traditional companies that aren't using this system.
  • 360 feedback also makes the power dynamic between manager and report more equal. A manager will have a bad feedback packet if their reports all share bad feedback about them. This holds bad managers accountable.
