Performance and development review schemes

Performance and development review schemes provide an opportunity for staff to have a structured and productive conversation with a manager about their performance and development needs. The primary objective of all review schemes is the development of staff through the provision of a supportive environment that allows staff to excel in their role. It is also about recognising and rewarding excellence.
