The OPTM360 is a proprietary online survey software used for conducting 360 degree feedback evaluations. This is different than other traditional 360 feedback tools because it accelerates development by giving employees easy to understand, prioritized advice for quickly changing their behaviors.
360 feedback is a process where people receive confidential feedback from their managers, colleagues and peers.
OPTM360 feedback helps employees prioritize on the most important behaviors to change and gives them specific, practical advice for how to change. Our 360 tool includes feedback from an employee's subordinates, peers and supervisor(s), as well as a self-evaluation by the employee himself or herself.
The OPTM360 is guided by the science of an individual’s behavior towards feedback.1. People often reject information that threatens their self-image, and how people receive feedback influences whether they take action.
Our carefully crafted a 360 degree feedback process knows that people respond better to feedback that doesn't compare them to others, so we don't use norms.
Our report provides direction and advice for change in a way that leaders can quickly understand, internalize and put into practice.
A 360 evaluation feedback process starts with the person who will receive feedback (participant), and a list of people who will provide feedback to that person through a 360 survey (raters).
The participant and raters complete a brief survey. The survey includes a list of workplace behaviors and job competencies either specific to a company or those we have identified as being shared by high-performing leaders. Once raters have finished, a report is generated and shared with the participant. That report helps develop the participant by telling them the few things they should focus on and how they can develop those capabilities. If your company already has an 360 process in place, our process can be an an additional tool to support leaders. If your company has not used 360 degree feedback before, the OPTM360 can be a strategic tool to develop your workforce.
