“360” refers to the 360 degrees in a circle, an all-around view, and 360-degree feedback is also known as multi-rater feedback.
A 360 is a way for multiple individuals, with different perspectives, to share feedback with a colleague related to his/her skill, performance, and leadership. Examples of raters in a 360 assessment include direct reports, team members, peers, and managers or administrators.
UI LEAD recognizes that individual development leads to organizational success.
"The better designed development initiatives employ structured 360-degree feedback based on responses from workplace colleagues....Learning is enhanced whenever individuals have some form of behavior feedback..." (Jay Conger, Marshall School of Business at The University of Southern California and author of Learning to Lead)
