Claudia Dewald

Looking for more questions to use when you ask employees to provide feedback about a coworker in a 360 review? In an earlier article, we shared 360 feedback questions in five areas that were identified with data from Indeed.com.

They tracked the attributes characteristics, and traits that employers sought most frequently in their employment ads for a period of time. If most employers are seeking a particular attribute, that provides a good starting point for developing 360 review questions.
