2019 Performance Cycle

Posted on June 06, 2019

Dear colleagues,

The purpose of this communication is to:

  • remind you that performance agreements for 2019 should already have been concluded, and,
  • emphasize the importance of mid-year performance reviews.

Performance agreements for 2019

Performance contracting provides an opportunity at the beginning of the year to:

  • plan work and set clear goals which are SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-bound);
  • ensure shared commitment to a vision, goals and targets;
  • engage in conversation about what we expect from each other in terms of work output, support, tools, resources, etc; and
  • discuss personal development plans.

Please be reminded to finalise your agreement on PeopleSoft as soon as possible if you have not yet done so. Thank you if you already have.

Mid-year performance reviews

The purpose of the mid-year performance review is to:

  • reflect on and discuss progress made towards the performance agreement and to assess whether participants are on track to meet the performance objectives by year-end;
  • identify and resolve problems or concerns;
  • review progress with regard to a personal development plan (PDP); and
  • encourage open and constructive dialogue and exchange of views on progress and development.

The due date for mid-year reviews is 31 July 2019.

Information and resources related to performance management, including how to capture your performance agreement and mid-year review, can be found on the HR intranet site:


Please do not hesitate to contact your HR Business Partner should you have any queries.
