Companies around the world are deploying various performance management tools and techniques to monitor and promote effective performance at the workplace. 360 Degree feedback software is one of the most significant elements of performance management as it aids the management to gain relevant insights regarding the potential performance of their workforce. Apart from these, it also provides a real-time understanding of every individual’s opportunities in the areas of learning and development. This platform enables businesses to receive and provide non-anonymous and anonymous feedback across all levels of the departments in businesses, as well as external customers.

  • In July 2020, Grapevine Evaluations launched its 360-degree feedback assessment tool for HR consultants and HR firms to allow them to customize the changes as per the employee assessment needs and requirements.

COVID Impact

Remote Working Practice to Accelerate Demand for Feedback Software

Covid-19 has forced many companies to scale down their business operations, made it mandatory for employees to work from home, and has pushed companies to limit their budget. This changing business environment has driven organizations to be adaptive and agile. The current remote working scenario has made it necessary for the management to keep their workforce engaged and productive. Mangers are finding it challenging to monitor, review, and judge an employee’s work performance in the current distant working environment.

360 Degree feedback software can help organizations to improve employee engagement and retention by providing timely feedback to their employees. This software also allows simple sharing and requesting feedback from both the employee and employer ends. This two-way communication would help in promoting a healthy and transparent work culture. It not only keeps the workforce engaged but also increases their enthusiasm and motivation towards work. Thus, 360 Degree feedback software is helping to provide a seamless experience to employees in this era of remote working.

On the other side, the economic downturn and the huge loss incurred due to the lockdown have forced companies to limit their budget for the year 2020. Thus, budget constraint is one of the major reasons for restricting companies to purchase new software.

Need to Understand Connection between Workplace Experience and Mental Wellbeing is a Vital Trend

Employees’ moods or sentiments determine their level of engagement in work. The ‘State of the Global Workplace’ report mentions that around 85% of employees are not actively engaged at work if they are unhappy and unsatisfied at the workplace. Tracking the sentiments of employees and trying to resolve their issues would help in engaging them actively in work.

360 Degree feedback software provides a platform for employees to share their views, suggestions, and feedback, thereby helping companies to drive real-time accountability for all areas and touchpoints. It also helps in capturing the sentiments of employees in special scenarios such as management reconstruction, change in leadership, and business transitions like mergers. The collected data assists in quickly tracing the dynamics of the employee’s engagement or disengagement in work. This enables companies to act and resolve their issues, thereby improving employee retention rates and reducing the employee churn rate. Thus, 360 Degree feedback software is playing a vital role in understanding the connection between mental wellbeing and workplace experience.


Use of 360 Degree Feedback Software for Personal and Organizational Performance Development to Bolster Growth

The agile performance management approach provides more value to the employees by supporting their visions that aligns better with the current dynamic business models. Gathering feedback from several individuals instead of one particular senior person reduces the possible shortcomings of the opinions about any individual. 360-degree feedback software enables open communication about performance as it involves the practice of receiving and giving feedback from all directions — upwards, downwards, and sideways. This comprehensive process of feedback further aids employees to understand how others perceive their attitude, skills, and behaviors in the workplace. These would help employees to understand their strengths, weaknesses, and areas for growth.

Besides, it supports employees and their managers to use the feedback to recognize the need for training, as well as to create a professional development plan that would enhance their career growth. Organizations use this software to make promotions, appraisals, and pay-related decisions. Thus, 360 Degree feedback software synthesizes the external assessment and self-assessment to gain a clear understanding of an employee’s potential for further development.


Time Consuming Practice and Improper Use of Software May Impede Growth

Although the software comes with numerous benefits, it has some drawbacks too, which would restrict its adoption among organizations. The feedback process is time-consuming as it involves a large number of people and steps. On the other hand, as it allows evaluators to express opinions freely, it is expected to harm the evaluated employee morale, if vengeful reviews are received. Thus, when 360 Degree feedback software is used correctly, it allows employees to improve their key areas and resolve major conflicts within a team. But when done poorly, it may create anger, conflict, and mistrust among employees. These factors may refrain organizations from adopting this software.


By Type Analysis

Installed Segment to Hold Maximum Share Backed by Faster Data Entry and Reporting

On the basis of type, the market has been bifurcated into installed and web-based. Among these, the installed segment is set to capture the maximum market share as it does not require the internet to operate and can be customized according to specific needs.

The web-based software is expected to show the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This type of software allows users to log in and access data from any internet-connected devices from anywhere.
