Reviewing performance and why it is important
Regular reviewing of performance is a key component of employee development. Through 1-to-1s and annual performance reviews, employees are supported to achieve their potential and deliver in their roles. Your performance review is the forum for an annual discussion between you and your manager to: review your progress against previous objectives and role expectations; provide two-way feedback; discuss and career aspirations and development requirements, set objectives; and plan your support and development.
It is important to consider how staff undertake the role and achieve their objectives, linking to our Core Values of Integrity, Connected, Ambition, Respect and Excellence (ICARE) and Professional Standards.
Appraisal meetings are the single most important way in which the University ensures that each and every individual is able to perform to the best of their abilities and fulfil their professional aims and ambitions. The purpose of these reviews is to:
- Review the progress/achievements against objectives and the development plan.
- Recognise team members’ accomplishments.
- Discuss and agree upcoming objectives and development requirements for the year ahead
