Why Should Your Organization Adopt 360-Degree Performance Reviews?

Out of over 3,700 customers in different industries, 65% of Trakstar customers conduct 360-Degree performance reviews. Providing the flexibility needed to be successful, Trakstar enables managers, coworkers, and even outside contributors to create a more rounded view of an employee during the review process so that everyone is working towards the same goals. Their feedback is centralized on key components of performance and guided to make it easier for managers to gain insights into just how an employee is doing.

With Trakstar’s software, you can decide when, where, why, and how 360-degree reviews are collected. Align with your company’s culture and ideals to create a safe place for employees to grow and feel seen. Use our best practices to eliminate bias in the performance review process, generate meaningful conversations, and even align expectations across departments.

What is the 360-Degree Review Process?

With Trakstar, you can choose who has access to 360-degree feedback by building it right into the workflow of the review so your employees and managers don’t fall behind during review time. The manager has complete control over what is shared with the employee (such as peer feedback or constructive feedback) and whether they see who the feedback was submitted by, which helps take the stress out of requesting and managing 360-degree feedback. Trakstar’s modern user interface delivers a better way to do performance management with other features that include:

  • Ability to set and update goals while tracking progress and employee performance throughout the year
  • Discovery of performance issues before they go unresolved
  • Pre-generated questionnaires for efficiency
  • Competencies based on job description and duties

Positive, Holistic Reviews Across Your Organization

Traditional performance reviews show only a portion of an individual employee’s impact. With the help of 360-degree reviews, managers and leaders get the full picture of employee performance.

Our 360-degree feedback tool automates reviews for respondents and employees. With feedback surveys and questionnaires built right into the Trakstar Perform dashboard, we make it easy to collect feedback, facilitate employee development, and keep retention rates high through employee experience and real-time feedback.

Your people need to grow and adapt—and sometimes that message gets lost when it comes from managers. However, when it comes from their peers, they are more likely to make positive changes.

360-Degree Performance Reviews Make Feedback More Comprehensive

When you ask multiple team members to reflect on an employee’s performance, you get the clearest and most accurate portrayal of an employee’s performance. This feature eliminates bias in the review process and enables HR to identify top performers and those who may need to improve.

If you have large teams, multiple shifts or locations, or you struggle to monitor employee performance, 360-reviews can help managers feel comfortable making decisions around retaining and engaging employees. With 360-degree performance reviews, you can track performance all year.

360-Degree Reviews Lead To Better Employee Engagement

Employees who feel like they are being heard and respected are more likely to work harder and stay with a company. With 360-degree feedback, employees can be open with how they feel about their coworkers, managers, and leaders. They know that their reviews are read and taken into consideration because, in turn, they are given the same 360-degree reviews.

Even better, employees who receive 360-degree feedback are more motivated to improve and stay consistent with their daily efforts. With Trakstar, it’s easier to create a culture of accountability and strength.
