The Senior Management Committee were asked to reinstate their commitment to PDRs and share why they believe they are important.

WHY DO YOU THINK PDRS ARE IMPORTANT?

PDR allows team members to review their role and responsibilities, gain feedback, identify objectives and priorities for the year and consider any support needed to achieve them. They are a key part of the support available for personal, professional and career development.

PDRs can contribute to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

WHAT BENEFITS HAS IT OFFERED TO YOU?

I have benefited from mentoring and performance review throughout my career. PDRs in a research environment can be challenging, with research and technical aspects of project related work requiring one approach, while providing a consistent overview of performance requiring another approach. I have benefited from flexibility in approach alongside independent advice, support and mentoring

HOW DO YOU BELIEVE IT WILL BENEFIT MEMBERS OF YOUR GROUP?

The challenges facing early and mid-career researchers are increasingly recognised. Statements of policy and principle from national research organisations provide clear directions for us all. Proactively seeking feedback and gathering evidence to demonstrate contributions to research and other aspects of teaching, leadership and administration are key components in building a research career.
