PRD Online changing soon: new HR IT system

Monday, 26 February 2018

Developing the careers and performance of all staff is crucial to our success. The Performance Review and Development (PRD) process enables individuals to manage their own career development

While regular quality conversations remain the key to good performance review, a good system to support this is also important for recording and tracking progress.

“We have known for some time that the PRD online system has been an obstacle for many,” Philippa Johnston, Workforce Strategy Manager said.

“Thanks to the support of the Strategic IT Committee, we are really excited to be rolling out a vastly improved system, SuccessFactors.”

The project has been a collaborative effort between Human Resource Services, IT Services, and the vendor, addressing feedback from Schools and Units around frustrations with the previous system.

“One of the great things about the new system is that Schools and Units can be flexible in how they use the system to support their PRD process, while still providing a consistent platform for PRD across the whole University.” Philippa said.

Leaders across UON with PRD responsibilities are getting a glimpse at the new system prior to the March launch.

“We are really looking forward to working with a system that ties the different elements together, such as the Leadership Framework and Performance Expectations, and ultimately supports the promotions process,” Professor John Germov, PVC, Academic and Faculty of Education and Arts said.

The first phase roll-out will also include a probation module. Further phases will support recruitment, on-boarding and talent management.
