The Best 360 Feedback Software

I’m going to spoil the surprise a little here; we think our SIGMARadius 360 Feedback Software is your best choice.

However, if you don’t mind some subtle self-promotion, this post will provide you with a simple framework for selecting your 360 feedback vendor; even if it is not us.

Simplicity is Key

While it may feel like a daunting task, a 360 Feedback initiative should not be an administrative burden. It is the vendor’s responsibility to do all the heavy lifting and make the process easy for clients and their employees. To create a superior experience for our clients, SIGMA:

  • Manages the process from start to finish.
  • Provides helpful resources like sample communications and project plans.
  • Offers optional services for pre-process training, post process debrief, and individual coaching.

Our job is to make you look good to all your stakeholders.

Experience Matters

SIGMA is about to celebrate our 50th birthday. In that time, we have managed successful 360 feedback initiatives that ranged from a project of 1 to projects with Chrysler that each involved over 200,000 participants.

The first time completing the project for Chrysler involved processing and collating paper (yes, paper) ratings by hand from start to finish in less than 6 weeks. While the internet has dramatically simplified the logistics of large projects, our ability to deliver for our clients has not.

Experience ensures your project will be on time and painless.

The Best of Both Worlds

360 feedback is more than just an online platform to collect ratings. A valid 360 assessment should be designed by an I/O Psychologist to ensure the items, rating scales, and the process itself follows best practices.

SIGMA’s team has always combined the most respected I/O Psychologists in the industry with top technology professionals.

More Than Ratings

A 360 Feedback Report provides a great foundation for an employee’s future development. However, a report should include more than just a summary of ratings. Our SIGMARadius report includes extensive resources for each competency measured along with an invaluable development guide to walk the employee (and their supervisor) through interpreting results and developing their Individual Development Plan.

To further enhance the effectiveness of your process, we provide options for one-on-one debriefs and/or our popular Group Debrief.

Providing more than just ratings will ensure your 360 Feedback Report does more than taking up room in your file cabinet.

Fit

The most important factor when selecting 360 Software is the fit between the assessment and what you want to measure. You wouldn’t use a tape measure to measure ingredients for your cupcakes. So, you shouldn’t use any assessment (even ours) unless there is alignment with what is important for success in your organization.

SIGMA provides an efficient process for customizing our SIGMARadius assessment to ensure the best fit and the highest probability of success.

While I started off this post declaring SIGMARadius as your best choice, there is truly no way of knowing for sure unless we know a little more about your project. So, let’s connect.
