The Anatomy of a CPA 360 Assessment creates a benchmark for professional development by identifying the strengths of the participant and targeting areas that need to be developed. This 360 evaluation for CPAs measures characteristics and skills based on Gatto Associates 17 key performance indicators.

The assessment is completed by a participant, and up to ten respondents (the participant’s work associates, including partners, peers and staff). These respondents anonymously complete assessments, which include numerical ratings and customized, open-ended questions related to the participant.

The report generated includes the self-performance evaluation compared with respondent’s evaluations, numerical based assessments and written narratives as to strengths and opportunities for development for the participant, general comments for the participant from associates, and an action plan to enhance performance. This is an effective tool for mentoring people developmentally.

Optional: A Team Report can be generated if at least four participants complete the full assessment. There is no additional charge for this report.
