The problem we needed to solve
We were looking for a 360 Degree Feedback tool that we could use to provide bespoke 360s to run as part of the leadership development programmes we provide to our clients. We believe that 360 feedback which measures what’s most important for success in the unique environment of the client organisation is critical and adds substantially more value than off the shelf 360 products.
So we were looking for a tool that was clear and easy for our clients to use, but critically, that was easy for us to set up and administer. We want to spend our time working closely with clients, so a tool that didn’t take too much time and was intuitive to administer was very important to us.
Also, because we are busy, we wanted to be able to access support when we need it, and not have to wait for a response from a remote service desk. This was an essential requirement as often we need to run and administer the 360s at fairly short notice and want to provide a responsive service to our clients.
How Track 360 solved the problem
The Track 360 tool has allowed us to run 360s that are branded and professional for our programmes, but that are also flexible and scalable to suit different client needs.
We can log into Track 360 when we need to, upload a new group of users, and have our bespoke leadership development 360 up and running in a matter of minutes. We can view progress on a real-time dashboard, which allows us to follow up and encourage completion when required. And finally, we can generate reports when we need to, in time for debriefing groups and individuals on their 360 Degree Feedback.
The Track team are very responsive and helpful, for example we were able to work with the Track team to offer a Spanish language 360 for a client at short notice, which allowed us to add great value to our service. They also provided great support early on as we were getting used to administering the tool. There is also a range of support and training materials that we can refer to at any time.
The results: what has changed?
It feels like I’m working in a partnership with Track 360. I know I can contact the team and get the help I need – when I need it.
