Performance Dialogue Process

The Performance Dialogue Process (PDP) provides an opportunity for meaningful communication between supervisors and employees about their work and contributions. The documents linked to this page correspond to two processes at Queen’s: the PDP for Grades 2 to 9, and the PDP for Grades 10 to 14. Managers are encouraged to use these Processes and these tools. The purpose of the Performance Dialogue is to:

  • Set objectives- review objectives from the previous year, and set objectives for the coming year 
  • Provide a focus on feedback and a structure for ongoing coaching and communication between supervisor and employee
  • Review quality of work performance and personal contribution
  • Evaluate and develop staff performance to achieve agreed upon objectives 
Please contact Organizational Development and Learning, Queen's Human Resources for complete details about implementing either of these Performance Dialogue Processes.
