(1)What is 360-degree feedback? What advantages might it have over more traditional performance appraisal systems that use only downward feedback? What are some of the problems that could occur in using a 360-degree feedback system? The 360 degree feedback system is a survey conducted by a few select individual within an organization about a specific employee or employees. Coworkers, supervisors, and executives from the top-down hierarchy can rate or grade the performance of an employee that is based upon behavioral characteristics and core competencies. It allows each employee to give his/her honest opinion about working with the rated employee. In addition to being rated by coworkers the rated employee must complete a survey/questionnaire about him/herself as well. The survey is confidential and anonymous and gives managers/leaders a general idea about how coworkers interact with each other. The 360 degree feedback system is an excellent method for determining if an organization possesses a multifaceted group that embodies team players. In retrospect, the survey system is a beneficial attribute for employees for the reason that it gives employees an opportunity to discover their strengths and weaknesses and enables them to become more efficient in organizational processes. The aforementioned feedback system is an organizational developmental system used to measure the effectiveness of the workforce. Every organization has some form of weakness emanating from within the internal framework that prevents an organization from operating to its full potential. If weaknesses are not quickly identified organizations may incur significant ramifications, thus resulting in loss of revenue or competitive advantage.

Organizational communication (OC) is very complex and fragmented. Many organizations deal with the overwhelming risk of high employee turn around as a result of failure to communicate effectively. Lack of effective OC often result in low company morale, decreased productivity performance, and/or decrease in revenue. In any event, OC is an exceedingly comprehensive process that must be strategically implemented if an organization is going to reduce turn around and increase productivity and performance. For years researchers have developed theories and philosophies that would formulate an adequate definition as to what organizational communication is, however in more simplistic terms OC can be defined as a collection of input/output, feedback, and innovative collaboration from within an organizational hierarchical framework consisting of staff members, executives, lower-mid-high level employees, and team members with the sole purpose of achieving an organizations primary objective. Communicators within organizations are required to provide information and resources to members within the organization as a method of invoking change initiatives, motivating staff, and encouraging forward progression. Successful communication relies heavily on a two-sided collaborative function of active listening and proactive communicating.
