The Personal Development and Performance Review (PDPR)

The Personal Development and Performance Review (PDPR) is designed to be a transparent mechanism for setting objectives, identifying development needs, reviewing work progress, and embedding our values.

The PDPR provides an opportunity for staff to stand back from their day-to-day activities and discuss what they feel to be their main achievements over the last 12 months, their performance and career aspirations in general, and to make plans for the year ahead and beyond.

How does the online PDPR system work?

People managers will be able to access the PDPRs for their staff from within iTrent (the system used to approve annual leave and record sickness) and staff would access their PDPR sections via MyHR (the system used to view payslips and book annual leave). The videos below help you to navigate the PDPR system, although we hope the system is easily understood. 

If you wish to know more detail, further information can be found on the MyHR webpage, the MyHR userguide or People Manager (iTrent) userguide.
