Employee Performance Review
Welcome to the University employee review process, called the Employee Performance Review (EPR).
All employees who have contracts of 6 months or longer are included in the EPR process.
Part-time Temporary / Ad Hoc staff are also included, but using a shorter version of the review form. The form is accessible from the "Supplementary forms" page.
A key feature of the upgraded process is a single, common review cycle,meaning reviews and objective-setting occurs at approximately the same time each year (in the June to August period) for all employees.
The main purposes of Employee Performance Review are as follows:
- Creating the opportunity for regular, meaningful 2-way conversations with your line manager regarding performance and development needs
- To get and give feedback
- The opportunity to raise issues in an open, constructive manner
This website gives comprehensive guidance on most aspects of Employee Performance Review. If you have a particular aspect of EPR that you want to look up, you can go straight to it by selecting from the navigation bar on the left of the screen.
There is an online Moodle-based training guide that can be accessd by all employees. This guide is not only useful for new employees but also acts as a reflesher on any aspect of EPR.
