Our Performance Review and Development or PRD is a collaborative, on-going process between you and your manager to plan for, develop and evaluate your work.

Performance Review and Development (PRD) process

Performance planning and review supports our commitment to being a world-class university. Our PRD is a collaborative, on-going process between you and your manager to plan, develop and evaluate your work.

The PRD aims to provide clarity around your role, performance and career, and to ensure that each of us is working toward achieving the strategic objectives of the University.

All ongoing staff on fixed-term contracts (of more than six months) are expected to have a PRD in place and hold regular performance conversations with their manager or supervisor.
