People need feedback, and 360-degree feedback is the most effective way to give them information about hard-to-measure aspects of their performance. 360 lets you ask for and get feedback from many sources about a comprehensive array of closely related workplace behaviors. If done in the right way, the 360-degree feedback can be exceedingly valuable.

Most people are uncomfortable in the feedback role—whether giving positive or constructive feedback—and they’re happy to leave this task to managers. Also, most people don't like being negative, and they don't want to risk offending their coworkers. 360-degree feedback gives people a safe vehicle for giving their opinions about another person's work patterns.
