Best Practices for successful 360 feedback projects

  1. Communicating to subjects and participants

Prior to launch be sure to communicate about the 360 process to subjects and participants. Sample introductory language and template are provided for Subjects and Participants in the Pre-Launch Checklist.

Survey projects run more smoothly when the Subjects personally request participation from their participants. Personally asking participants for their thoughtful and constructive input also produces more valuable insights.

  1. Ask IT to Allow-List Roster.com

Ask your IT leadership to Allow-List our domain, @roster.com and specifically our sending address, support@roster.com so that our emails do not get stuck in spam filters or firewalls. Email language is available for this purpose in the Pre-Launch Checklist.

  1. Setting Up 360 Survey Projects

Survey Projects: A Roster 360 survey project can contain one or many survey subjects. A consideration with multiple survey subjects is avoiding survey fatigue – we recommend no participant has more than 4 surveys assigned to them during a survey period.


Selecting Participants: Collaborate with each subject to create that subject’s participant list. Best practice is to choose participants who have worked with the subject for several months and know their management style and their responsibilities at both a strategic and operational level.


Number of Participants: We strongly suggest each survey subject have 10 to 20 participants. The minimum is 6 participants. If necessary, you may add more than 20 participants, but qualitative feedback comments from more than 20 participants across multiple questions can become difficult to internalize for the subjects.


Participant Cohorts: Participants typically fall into our standard cohorts such as Senior, Peer, Direct, and Team. CEO surveys are likely to also include Board members. You can also create custom cohorts. By grouping participants into cohorts, Roster is able to provide insights regarding how the various cohorts view the subject from their vantage points.


Maintaining Anonymity: To maintain anonymity, each cohort must have at least three participants complete the survey. If less than three members complete their surveys, their results will be aggregated into a larger cohort.


Required Data: The Roster system asks for first and last name, email address, title, level, functional department, and cohorts.

Survey Projects: A Roster 360 survey project can contain one or
multiple individual surveys. The limiting factor with multiple surveys is avoiding survey fatigue – we highly recommend making sure no participant has more than 4 surveys assigned to them during a survey period.

Maintaining Anonymity: To maintain anonymity, at least three members of each cohort must complete their surveys. If less than three members complete their surveys, their results will be rolled up into a different, larger cohort.


Required Data: The Roster system asks for first and last name, email address, title, level, functional department, and cohorts.
