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.

Detailed information on the various schemes along with supporting documentation and training information can be found by clicking on the links below.
