Sample email to ask someone to be a rater

Dear [name],

I am currently participating in HR’s Managing for Excellence program, a six-month program to help me develop my strengths in managing individuals and groups. As part of the program, I am going through a 360 assessment, which is a process to gather feedback from a variety of people on my effectiveness as a manager. I will use this feedback as the foundation for development goals that I will create during the program. The feedback is confidential, except for the feedback from my manager, and I will not know how I was rated by any particular individual.

I’m writing to ask if you would be willing to provide me with feedback through my 360. Completing the 360 requires approximately 30-45 minutes, and the deadline to complete it is January 31.

If you are able to do this, please let me know. If so, you will receive an email from MOR Associates, an outside, independent consulting firm, that will include specific instructions about how to complete the 360.

I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have. Otherwise, I hope you will consider taking part in my 360 and helping me to get the most from this opportunity.

Thank you,
