Performance Development Review
All permanent staff at York St John need to have a Performance
Development Review (PDR). This should happen once a year, with
ongoing review throughout the year to discuss progress.
A PDR meeting, when done correctly, is one of the most important
meetings that any manager can have with their staff. It is their
opportunity to motivate and engage the individual in the team and
The purposes of having a PDR are to:
- Provide a constructive two-way discussion of activities,
achievements and areas for improvement.
- Agree objectives for the forthcoming year, in alignment with
Faculty/ Departmental objectives.
- Agree a development plan, addressing individual needs and
aspirations to allow
staff to achieve their full potential.
Following feedback from colleagues across the University we are
pleased to publish the new documentation. If you need any advice or
guidance about the documentation please do not hesitate to Contact Staff Development.
