Performance appraisal Policy


The Company has a Performance Development Review scheme. The aims and purposes of the Scheme are:

  • To help managers and staff to make effective arrangements to identify and meet learning needs
  • To develop the skills, knowledge, values and behaviour that staff need to do their current jobs well

Performance Development Review - The Process

There are 3 stages in the process:

  1. Preparation - where you and your manager prepare separately for the interview using the appropriate documentation.
  2. The Performance Development Review discussion - where a personal development plan is agreed by you and your manager.
  3. Monitor and Review - the method and timescale for monitoring should be agreed at the discussion stage and implemented throughout the year.

The Performance Development Review documentation is available from your line manager.
