Each year SurveyConnect collects and reports out on data that we hope is useful to our clients and friends. In 2018, as in previous years, we decided to focus our questions on the 360 process – how many employees are asked to participate and why, as well as what happens with the data once it is collected. In this way, we can understand the objectives and uses of the 360-degree feedback process at this point in time, and see how answers have changed over past years. 80 people responded to the questionnaire this year; 34% of these respondents are external consultants and 66% are in-house employees.
The debate about the best way to give employees actionable feedback has grown more interesting as technology develops at an increasingly rapid rate. We believe that using a continuous feedback application as an adjunct to 360 degree assessments like our ActiveView 360 system is a great way for feedback to become a process, and not just an annual (or semi-annual) event.
