Personal Development Review

"We will create an environment where all employees are enabled to take responsibility for improving their own development"

Personal Development Review (PDR) adopts a developmental approach in support of our People First promise to “create opportunities to build the capability of our staff”. It provides the framework for an ongoing conversation between Reviewer and Reviewee to review progress against previously agreed Priorities; discuss future plans and career aspirations; co-create future Priorities and Development Goals; and plan relevant and appropriate support.

The key to a successful PDR is the meaningful, ongoing conversations between Reviewer and Reviewee throughout the Review Period that leads to quality outcomes for the Reviewee, for example, improved effectiveness within current role and achievement of their development goals.

PDR enables Reviewees, with the appropriate support of their Reviewer, to take ownership for and drive forward their own career and development plans, and in turn, and understand how they are personally contributing to the success of our University.
