As far as i know,in 360 degree appraisal system,an employee is appraised by his bosses,co workers,subordinates.Whereras in 720 degree appraisal along with the above givan people,appraisal is done by com pany customers.

360 Degree Appraisal is the process of ensuring everybody in the company gets all-round feedback - from above, from their peers and from anybody they manage, as well as from customers. Whereas 720 Degree Appraisal takes it a step further and gets feedback from suppliers too.

720 Feedback provides a comparison of a participant's results over a period of time, often 12-18 months. This comparison informs participants of their developmental progress and gives them an opportunity to update and change their action plan.
WHY 720 FEEDBACK is recommended?

In 360 degree appraisal,an employee is appraised by his boss,coworker,subordinates and customer.The 720 degree appraisal goes a step further,with appraisal also done by the supplier. Regards Suhas
Hi.......... All cite HR members,

Hi all,

I have heard that for 720 degree performance appraisal the family
members and the stake holders will also rate the employees. Can any
one tell who all will rate the employees?

And also many fel that it cannot be followed in a country like India
because no family members will be rating the emoployees in a negative
way. If that is the case then will that be wise enough to implement such a
system in the organizations.

Got Some Idea about 720 Degree Appraisal, Will do some research on the same,,, :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
According to Roberta Hill of Assessment Today, 720 is infamous and is nothing but a revised form of 360 degree approach, which provides for two rounds of feedback (a pre- and post-test).
1. What is 360-degree feedback?
The term has become synonymous with feedback from multiple sources. Other names are multi-rater, multi-source, full-circle, group performance review, 180 degrees and, finally, the infamous 720 degrees. Someone coined the term "360 degrees" to represent a full circle of feedback from all angles, and we have been stuck with the misnomer ever since. Over the years, many consultants and organizations have tinkered with the 360 approaches, creating 180-degree versions that collect feedback from limited levels, or a 720-degree approach, which provides for two rounds of feedback (a pre- and post-test).

Dear all,
Sometime back i had the privelege of attending the seminar where Dr T V Rao was the guest speaker and i had posed the same question.
He dismissed it as a fad and stressed that companies today in India have not fully well utilised 360 degrees as yet.
yes, someone rightly said 720 degrees is the process of 360 degrees of being re-visited.
