Message from the Principal

Heriot-Watt's vision for the next decade is to become a world-leading university - a university which will produce the next generation of global leaders in business and technology.  In order to achieve this ambition, we are committed to growth and investment, both in staff an infrastructure.  Performance and Development Review (PDR) was introduced to ensure that every member of staff at Heriot-Watt University is able to fully contribute to the delivery of the University's strategy, and to help them meet their own career aspirations and goals.

PDR is a tool to help you identify your performance objectives and the development you need in your role.  Though the review cycle, you will be able to clarify objectives and discuss feedback on your performance with your line manager, helping you realise your full potential.

Below is a comprehensive guide to PDR, containing guidance notes with hints and tips to help you get the most our of your performance and development review.  If you have any questions about PDR your HR Partner will be happy to help you.
