Your annual appraisal – called ‘My Performance & Wellbeing Conversation’ – is an opportunity to build on discussions you have had throughout the year with your line manager to discuss your wellbeing, how you’re feeling, how your work life balance is, any support you require and to review your performance against the previous year’s objectives.
You will identify and discuss your successes and achievements and set new objectives. Through this review, you will identify any support, training or development you would benefit from in order to deliver your work objectives and achieve your goals.
After your conversation has been completed, you and your line manager will be emailed a copy. Once you receive the email, you may wish to also save a copy in your personal drive.
Please be aware that it is your responsibility, and that of your line manager, to keep a copy of your conversation as this document should be referred to throughout the year to ensure you are working to targets/objectives set.
Copies of your conversations are not kept centrally by HR, however completion dates are recorded on ESR by The Organisation Development Team.
