4.0 The PDR process


The PDR process involves ongoing regular discussions between the reviewer and reviewee with a formal annual meeting at the end of the PDR cycle.  The PDR form should be completed after this annual meeting.

The regular discussions should take place on average every three months at which progress will be discussed and any objectives, or personal development activities, can be amended on the PDR form.  There is also the option to use the interim PDR form as a record.

The PDR process should not be seen as a replacement for the usual day-to-day meetings, discussions and line management.  It is important that when issues arise, both for line managers and staff, they are dealt with promptly and not left until the PDR discussion.  For managing performance, please see 8.2 below.
