What is a 360 Review? Understanding the Power of Feedback with AlignMark

In today’s dynamic business landscape, employee development and performance evaluation have become critical aspects of organizational success. To thrive in this competitive environment, companies must invest in tools and strategies that help them make informed decisions about their most valuable asset – their people. AlignMark, a pioneer in the field since 1976, has been at the forefront of assisting companies in recruiting, selecting, and developing their workforce. One of the valuable tools in their arsenal is the 360-degree review.


The Essence of a 360 Review

A 360-degree review, also known as multi-rater feedback, is a comprehensive assessment method that provides employees with feedback from multiple sources within and outside the organization. It encompasses feedback from superiors, peers, subordinates, and even external stakeholders like clients and suppliers. This holistic approach aims to provide a well-rounded view of an employee’s performance and development needs.


At AlignMark, we understand that nurturing talent and fostering growth is essential for any organization’s long-term success. Our 360-degree review tool is designed to empower companies by providing a deep and insightful understanding of their employees’ strengths, weaknesses, and potential areas for improvement.
