Abstract

The productivity and effectiveness of an organisation, directly relates to the performance of its employees. The effective management and retention of strong performers is therefore essential. It makes sense for organisations to invest in the most appropriate process to evaluate their employee" performance. Even though the 360 degree feedback process has grown in popularity over the past decade, there is little data to show how valid and fair the outcome of the process is. Furthermore the theorists would indicate a lack of confidence in the use of the 360 degree feedback process for performance appraisal. This study examines the usage of the 360 degree process in a multinational organisation. It seeks to understand in detail, the benefits and impacts of using the 360 degree feedback process for assessing employee performance. In conclusion, my findings clearly indicate that the 360 degree feedback process is of significant value to organisations, for both performance appraisal and development purposes. Although, the findings do clearly specify that the process must be
implemented in the correct manner, and that significant overhead is required. I will endeavour to substantiate these claims throughout my research paper.
