360-Degree Feedback is a system or process in which employees receive confidential, anonymous feedback from the people who work around them. This typically includes the employee's manager, peers, and direct reports.
The feedback will include direct feedback from an employee's subordinates, peers (colleagues), and supervisor(s), as well as a self-evaluation. It can also include, in some cases, feedback from external sources, such as customers and suppliers or other interested stakeholders.
Analysis of the feedback will be conducted, one-on-one coaching to discuss an action plan, and then a follow-up feedback session to go over the execution of the action plan.
