The employee performance appraisal needn't be done in a vacuum - it is important for a manager to solicit multiple viewpoints on the employee's performance, including a self-assessment from the employee. This type of appraisal is called a 360-degree review. Members of the company who may be involved in a 360-degree review include supervisors, top management, subordinates, co-workers and representatives from other departments who interact with the employee. In fact, anyone who has useful information on how the employee does the job, even customers and clients may be a source in the appraisal, providing a broader view of the employee's performance.
