360 background and theory image

The theory

The 360 Elite system was developed by Sarah Hamilton-Gill and was originally developed to manage complex projects and teams. In 2012, we worked with Sarah to develop our bespoke Thomas 360 system.  

The 360 system centres around providing a ‘360 degree’ perspective on someone's competencies. All feedback is anonymous and encourages everyone to answer freely, constructively and honestly. This feedback gives a better understanding of performance at work, strengths and areas to grow.  

Our 360 is bespoke, so you can make it work for what your business needs. Either pick from one of our questionnaire templates or choose the competencies you want to focus on from our selection.

Select a template or choose from the competencies to create your framework. Your respondents will use this to rate each other's performance on a scale of 1-7 and leave comments in a free text field. The report will provide a score and highlight any differences between the ratings from the participant, which is shown as an image in the report.
