Two months to complete your PDRs

The deadline to complete your online PDR is Monday 30 September – that’s just two months away to share your online form and have your PDR discussions. The new online PDR process was launched on 1 April and 55% of University staff have already used the online PDR form.

65 departmental briefings have taken place to support reviewees with the new process along with 8 ‘PDR Surgery Sessions’. More surgery dates are available during August, please visit the PDR webpages to book your place if you would like some further 1:1 support.

Further resources including User Guides, Video Tutorials, Guidance Notes and FAQs are all available on the PDR webpages and don’t forget your Departmental Expert Users – we provided training for 63 Expert Users across the University to support departments further.

In addition, we have provided workshops for nearly 500 Reviewers, supported by 15 ‘soft skills’ workshops to help support our reviewers in having constructive, meaningful conversations with their reviewees. Reviewers and line managers want to ensure you find the PDR process useful and that all staff understand the individual contribution that they make to help the University achieve its aims.
