PDR (Performance and Development Review) system

The online PDR (Performance and Development Review) system allows staff to ensure inputting and saving PDR records is easy and effective.

Key elements of the PDR are recorded on the system. These include preparation work by the reviewee and objectives which are agreed for the future in the PDR meeting. Reviewees share their preparation form with the reviewer prior to the meeting, so that the reviewer can do their preparation. After the meeting the reviewer shares the record of the discussion and the objectives with the reviewee before the reviewee submits the form as an accurate record, both in looking back and what has been agreed for the future.
