The Power of 360 Assessments
What it is
360 surveys are assessment tools that provide leaders and employees with feedback about their performance. These can be used for areas such as leadership, communication, productivity, and technical skills. In a 360° assessment, the individuals also rate themselves.
What it does
360 surveys allow employees to assess strengths and weaknesses in their workplace performance, interpersonal communication and/or management style with a focus on individual and organizational development. Managers and executives can use the information provided by a 360 survey to create organizational and individual development plans.
Managers and executives also gain tremendous personal benefit as they see how their leadership styles and methods are perceived by those they manage. As they make adjustments to better interact with and manage their employees, the entire organization benefits from the improvement to productivity.
How we do it
Piedmont HR creates customized and adverse-impact validated surveys with the client. We can pull from our library of assessments and customize them for each survey situation or begin from the beginning building just the right survey instrument for the client.
Once the survey is prepared, the survey is distributed for completion via a confidential, anonymous, on-line link. The results are compiled into reports and used a one of the tools in our Executive and Leadership Coaching sessions.
