What is 360° feedback?
As a method of personnel development, 360° feedback ensures that managers and employees get a complete picture of their competencies and improvement potential from different perspectives. This type of feedback includes their direct superiors, but also colleagues, team members and project partners.
People who can be involved in 360° feedback:
- Executive / Manager
- Work colleagues
- Customers or external stakeholders
- Self-assessment of the employee
Why is 360° feedback so efficient?
360° feedback stands out particularly because of the different perspectives it includes. The assessment of the individual is a combination of self and external assessment. This avoids subjective feedback from direct superiors. These different perspectives on an employees' competencies provide a great roadmap for development potential.
Self-assessment of a 360° feedback questionnaire may include, for example, questions such as:
- What would you list as your recent successes and failures?
- How do you see yourself interacting with your managers and work colleagues?
- Where do you see your strengths and weaknesses?
- What support would you like in order to be able to exploit your potential even better?
The results of the self-assessment questionnaire are then compared with those of the external assessment.
The result is a comprehensive assessment of the employees' competencies that is independent of subjective opinions.

New processes, new challenges! Optimize feedback culture with 360° feedback & LoopNow
Companies are constantly evolving. Internal processes must therefore also be adapted to growth or new structures so that employees in your company are prepared for new challenges.
You should take a critical look at the following structures …
How often do employee appraisals take place in your company? How long do they last?
The method of a detailed employee survey once a year is outdated. 360-degree surveys with LoopNow every quarter are agile, customizable, and quick to conduct.
Do your employees only receive feedback from direct supervisors?
The feedback should not lead back to only one assessing person. Whether it is an assessed employee:in, or an assessed manager, 360-degree feedback avoids subjective feedback by providing different perspectives from different people.
Did you set the right focus in your survey objectives?
Basing employee surveys solely on an analysis of strengths and weaknesses is not a good starting point. The personal development of your own employees is much more decisive. Based on the 360-degree feedback, jointly design a personal development plan.
How do you conduct the employee survey? Analog or digital?
