Reviewee – Where Should I Start?

Preparing for your performance & development review? Want to get the most out of it? What do you need to do?

The Essentials:

  • Begin by understanding the purpose and benefits of your Performance & Development Review and how it works.
  • Familiarise yourself with Transforming Lives and our ten immediate priorities as set out in our Strategy Implementation Plan. The Performance & Development review is structured to support its implementation.
  • The guidance for reviewees aims to support you to prepare for the discussion. Remember you have specific responsibilities, before, during and after the review discussion.
  • Familiarise yourself with the Performance & Development Review form which will help you and your reviewer structure the review conversation. It is also a useful aid to see what you might want to prepare for in advance.
  • As your review importantly considers the future, the discussion will involve setting SMART objectives. The setting SMART objectives guidance provides some practical considerations and some example objectives to help you set these with your reviewer.
  • In developing your objectives you should also consider your role in terms of supporting equality, diversity and inclusion and set an objective(s) to support this. Further guidance is available in the embedding equality objectives guidance document.
  • Utilise this toolkit, which is structured to guide you through the review process.
  • Remember it is equally as important to consider your career development & wellbeing.
  • Also, you can find answers to some of the frequently asked questions.
