Employees and managers have access to this plan, along with assigned coaches or mentors.

360 Degree Feedback Defined

360 Degree Feedback is a process that helps employees solicit confidential feedback from a variety of people who work in close collaboration with them. In a 360 Degree Feedback review, an employee completes a self-assessment and input is solicited from an employee’s manager, peers, and direct reports. Information can also be gathered from customers and suppliers.
