How do managers, supervisors, and leaders receive feedback to help them grow? A 360 review process is helpful, especially if the information is constructive and allows for real growth. Employers Council has a methodology proven to create real growth in those who manage and lead a workplace.

Our process provides a safe, exploratory environment for leaders to receive a comprehensive picture of their organizational performance from a variety of stakeholders that includes superiors, peers, and direct reports. We use The Profiler 360 assessment, which is based on decades of leadership research. It is a rigorous instrument measuring a comprehensive set of leadership competencies, strengths, and skills. It can also be tailored to specific levels of leaders in the organization.

Executives can encounter difficulty obtaining candid reviews from stakeholders such as board members, officers, subordinates, and directors. Concerns about confidentiality and effectiveness surround surveys created internally, and off-the-shelf packages are seldom adequate. Employers Council offers a 360 Review Survey and will work with your organization to:

  • Build the survey to meet your needs
  • Administer the survey in a confidential manner
  • Provide consultation for understanding the results and approaching the performance discussions

Join Employers Council for access to 360 assessments proven to grow leadership.

What It Means to Look at Performance through a 360-Degree Assessment

At their best, performance appraisals can result in improved efficiency, lower rates of employee turnover, and a healthy culture of transparency and clarity on roles and responsibilities. At their worst, they can create mistrust, frustration, and – in extreme cases – lawsuits. It’s important to approach these reviews with care, and establish an environment when employees can both give and receive feedback in a healthy manner.

A 360-degree assessment is a performance review based on confidential, anonymous feedback from the people who work around an employee. This helps ensure that the feedback accurately reflects the impact of an employee’s performance, no matter they fall within the organization. Employers Council can help create an environment where employees feel safe providing honest performance reviews (especially when seeking input on leadership), and help you deliver that feedback in the best possible manner.
