Each year our employees are required to participate in a performance and development review (PDR) with their line manager.
- This review is designed to cover:
- the contribution and performance of an individual
- individual behaviours
- learning and skill requirements
- health and wellbeing.
The PDR process is used as a tool to assess performance by linking it to behaviours. There are seven behaviours within our framework:
- shaping our future
- leading our people
- delivering for our customers
- making change happen
- team and partnership working
- communicating openly
- performance management.
Employees are assessed on the basis of both how they go about their work and what they achieve. The ‘how’ is defined through the ‘behaviours’ and the our values and priorities and the ‘what’ is expressed through the achievement of objectives and priorities.
At the end of the PDR process employees are given a performance rating in relation to objectives and behaviours.
The combined assessment for both elements, objectives and behaviour, will determine the overall performance rating awarded.
