360° reviews

360° reviews can be used for a variety of purposes, of course, but we tend to use them mainly in conjunction with a structured development programme. They’re a great way of identifying development priorities and setting a baseline against which to evaluate return on investment.

We use possibly the most innovative online assessment tools available on the market today, with a successful track record around the globe and now translated into more than 30 languages. They’re cost-effective, easy-to-use, research-based, off-the-shelf (or customised if you prefer) and thoroughly validated.

CustomView360

For clients looking for a complete customised approach, CustomView360 takes any existing competencies and questions and converts them into a web-based questionnaire, administration system and feedback reporting system all branded for the client. The reports can include coaching guides and development plans.

CustomView360 can handle single or dual rating scales with feedback possible from any number of client-defined rater types. E-mail instructions and website text are completely customizable.
