Coming soon: Performance and Development Review 2023

Details of the upcoming Performance and Development Review (PDR) cycle are now in place. 

This is an annual process which provides all staff who are eligible for a PDR with the valuable opportunity to reflect on their performance, potential and developmental needs. This year, it is also a time to identify how your role can support the delivery of the new University Strategy.  

Your reviewer will arrange a one-to-one meeting with you within the PDR period, which runs from 1 January – 31 March. Everyone will need to have completed their PDR meeting and the associated documentation within this timeframe.   

You will need to complete your PDR documentation through the online system and share it with your reviewer in advance of your meeting. This will be available from Tuesday 6 December.   

Your PDR meeting with your manager or reviewer will enable you both to reflect on the previous twelve months and have a meaningful conversation about the coming year.  

You will need to agree objectives for both your performance and your development. When you’re considering the development you might need in the coming year, think broadly. Often a training course or workshop is not the best method. Consider opportunities that help to stretch you in your daily work – for example, acting as a mentor to others, or taking on new activities that help you to develop new skills.   

Further information on the process and a link to the online system can be found on the PDR website.
