MultiView is our online 360-degree feedback system. It enables you to identify the strengths and development needs of individuals based on the views of themselves, their direct reports, their manager and their peers.

It is designed to support individual development, coaching, teambuilding and training needs analysis, and can be used across all sectors and functions and at different levels within an organisation.

MultiView is underpinned by a library of competencies. After profiling a specific role and identifying the required competencies, you can create a feedback questionnaire containing only the relevant competencies. MultiView can also be mapped to your own organisational competency framework.

How does it work

There are two parts to the MultiView feedback review – a self-review by the individual and colleague reviews by the individual’s direct reports, manager(s) and peers.

For both the self-review and colleague reviews, the respondent is asked to complete a feedback questionnaire consisting of questions and statements relating to the individual’s behaviour at work in the chosen competencies.

Under each area, the respondent is given a range of behavioural descriptions and a corresponding rating scale. They are asked to rate the individual’s performance against each behavioural description from 'far below competent' to 'fully competent'. They also have the opportunity to add comments and feedback about each area.

Completion of the MultiView questionnaire is not timed, however the self-review normally takes approximately 25 minutes to complete, whilst the colleague review takes approximately 5-15 minutes to complete dependent on the level of review.

Using MultiView

MultiView can be used across all sectors and functions and at different levels within an organisation.

We know how important it is to maximise the value from your investment in people development. MultiView is specifically designed for use in the following contexts:

  • To pinpoint areas for development: MultiView provides a 360-degree perspective of performance. The easy to interpret report enables you to identify consistencies and differences across the ratings and accurately determine the strengths and areas for development.
  • To target performance management activities: The capability gaps highlighted in the MultiView report can be used to target performance improvement more effectively.

Benefits

  • Fast: MultiView takes approximately 15-25 minutes to complete - less than half the completion time of other 360-degree feedback questionnaires.
  • Customisable: you are able to tailor your own 360-degree questionnaire based on the competencies you select as part of the role profiling activity.
  • Comprehensive: the competency framework underpinning MultiView has been developed following a thorough review of current frameworks and consideration of the competencies needed for the future.
  • Pragmatic: we recognise that some raters may have less knowledge of the feedback recipient than others, so a shorter questionnaire is also available – helping to reduce time and improve completion rates.
  • Convenient: delivered online, raters can complete the feedback whenever it suits them.
  • International: MultiView is currently available in a range of languages, making it an ideal choice for organisations conducting global assessment programmes.

Reports

MultiView reports are highly graphical, easy to understand and include the following components:

  • Summary competency profile for each rater group
  • Detailed profiles for each rater group
  • Free text comments from raters
  • Highest and lowest scoring competencies
  • Tailored development guide

The report design allows for comparison of individuals across and between rater groups. It illustrates behaviours that are more evident in interaction with certain groups than with others, providing distinction between capability gaps and selective application of skills.

Customisation options

We can map MultiView to your competency framework so that you’re able to plot your own competencies against those used within MultiView.

Other options for customising your assessments are also available – such as using your brand identity and language in assessment and reports, capturing bio-data specific to your organisation and integrating with your own talent management systems. Find out more about customised assessment options.

Getting started

There is no specific training requirement for MultiView. Once you place your order, your access to MultiView is immediate. You will receive unique login details to the assessment system by email.

Our customer service team can take you through the system online so you are up and running as soon as you need to be.

However, we do recommend our one day MultiView and 360-degree Feedback Masterclass for those interested in implementing best practice 360-degree feedback in their organisations.

Their contribution to this project was extremely positive and gave us tangible assessment data to use in shaping individual development programmes. Their support in designing and managing the 360-degree feedback process was invaluable. We look forward to working with them again soon.
