What is a 360 review?
In a 360 review an individual receives feedback from their full circle of influence in an organisation. This feedback might come from direct reports, peers, and managers, and in some cases external sources such as customers and suppliers or other stakeholders. This is combined with a self-assessment of performance.
A confidential summary of this feedback will help the person identify their strengths, as well as the areas they need to develop. Comparing their self-assessment to the others’ ratings helps create a personal development plan linking directly to key drivers of business growth.
Done well, a 360 review process can be one of the most positive steps an organisation call take towards finding out where strengths and weaknesses lie, and what to do about them.

We also have a range of expert trainers to deliver the feedback, creating an atmosphere whereby these often sensitive reviews will be delivered carefully, allowing the most effective use of the information.
Benefits to the individual:
Increased self awareness
Understanding of unrealised strengths and hidden weaknesses
Improved understanding of areas to focus on for development
Increased awareness by senior managers of their own development needs
Benefits to their colleagues:
The opportunity to give feedback in a confidential and secure environment
Greater openness in workplace relationships
- Improved teamwork through a better understanding of individual strengths and weaknesses
Benefits to your organisation:

Each 360 review comes with a personal development planning guide which provides a clear framework for ongoing development to retain the benefits of your investment. We provide a manager's guide which will assist in supporting the individual's developmental journey.
You can use your organisation's own competencies and offer consultancy services in the refinement and development of these where required. Alternatively you can use our competencies, which have been designed in line with best practice HR and learning expertise.
