An organizations typically communicates in a top-down fashion, the flow of feedback is also in a similar direction where upper management gives feedback to middle-level managers and middle-level managers relays feedback to subordinates. The interactions between a manager and a subordinate impact many aspects of the workplace and employee experience at work, for example morale, commitment, job satisfaction. Hence its significantly important that the Manager too get feedback on how they are interacting with their subordinate.

360 degree feedback survey is a method and a tool by which employees receive confidential, anonymous feedback from the people who work around them. This typically includes the employee's manager, subordinates and direct reports. 360 degree feedback allows each individual to understand how his effectiveness as an employee, coworker, or staff member is viewed by others.

Here is a small video of Bob - the Manager.


The feedback process gives people in the organisation an opportunity to provide anonymous feedback to a coworker that they might otherwise be uncomfortable giving. Also the feedback recipients gain insight into how others perceive them and have an opportunity to adjust behaviors and develop skills that will enable them to excel at their jobs.

Nowadays these surveys happen online, where all employees of the organisation are involved. They respond to some standard survey question and their responses to the questions are recorded anonymously. The final response data is then compiled to get a complete 360 feedback.

This method of 360 feedback not only helps to measures behaviors and competencies but also provides feedback on how others perceive an employee and it address skills such as listening, planning, and goal-setting. A 360 evaluation focuses on subjective areas such as teamwork, character, and leadership effectiveness.
