1. Introduction

Engagedly's 360 Feedback is a system where employees get feedback from their managers and multiple stakeholders, both within and outside the organization. It can be anonymous and confidential feedback shared by multiple raters or feedback providers, such as managers, peers, direct reports, subordinates, and external reviewers, that includes employee self-evaluation.

1.1. How does it Work

  • You create a 360 Feedback template and cycle.
  • You add reviewees and assign templates to them.
  • You nominate reviewers for the reviewees (managers and reviewees can nominate reviewers, if you permit them).
  • Reviewers receive notifications to submit their feedback.
  • You receive notifications after reviewers submit their feedback.
  • You share the feedback report with the employees after the cycle ends and/or before locking the cycle (only if you enable the share report manually).

If you want to modify the template, you have to unassign it, make the necessary modifications, and save it. If you want the modified changes to reflect in the template, you have to reassign it.
