Business Assessment Specialists Thomas International at CIPD Annual Conference 2007 Monday 16 July 2007 PDF Print Thomas360 gives you the big picture on staff performance Thomas is pleased to be exhibiting at the CIPD Annual Conference and Exhibition 2007 in Harrogate. This year we will be launching our new 360 assessment, so if you are visiting the show why not stop by our stand - B72 - and find out how Thomas360 could be giving you the ‘big picture’ on staff development performance. Thomas360 reaches the parts other appraisal tools don’t! It creates a totally comprehensive, objective picture of staff covering all the angles from peers to managers to customers and back again. Thomas360 is easy, fast and online. Reports are generated in seconds, giving you the ‘big picture’ on staff performance with in-depth information on skills, behaviours and working relationships in every area of the business. Peter Farrow, MD Thomas UK comments, "To achieve massive improvements in the performance of both individuals and organisations you need to begin with a strong platform of awareness and understanding. For individuals this means not only an awareness of self but also an understanding of how others within the organisation perceive them.” “Thomas360 builds on our personality and staff behavioural assessment tools (PPA and Thomas EIQ) by enabling objective, structured and in-depth information about performance. Thomas’ personality and behavioural assessments and tools measure behavioural preference; Thomas360 measures competence and explains how a person is actually behaving. The two combined provide a powerful resource for any organisation looking to dramatically increase its performance levels and increase profitability.” 360 degree feedback is a process that enables people to gather performance feedback from those they work with and compare it with their own perception of their performance. It provides information on skills, behaviours and working relationships. Malcolm Menard, Regional Director North comments, "Thomas360 can massively increase a person's self awareness and can be used as the foundation for personal development as well as strategic organisational planning. Used alongside PPA and Thomas EIQ, Thomas360 can truly harness the potential of your people." 360 degree feedback can help businesses to make the most of their people. Strengths and weaknesses can be pinpointed and training needs identified. Helping individuals to become aware of how others perceive them and to manage their behaviour results in a more productive workforce, meaning better performance for the organisation.
