Optimising Employee Performance

Performance management and development is fundamental to ensuring that the public sector and its agencies meet community expectations and deliver services effectively and efficiently. At its most effective performance management and development provides the foundation for a culture of productivity, growth and excellence that enables us to realise the full potential of our workforce.

The Premier’s Direction and Commissioner’s Guideline outline new standards to ensure that public sector agencies have effective performance management and development systems in place, and that all public sector employees participate in performance management and development reviews at least biannually.

This site provides information and tools to support:

  • Senior leaders and HR practitioners responsible for the design, implementation and evaluation of performance management and development systems
  • Managers undertaking performance management and development conversations with their team members
  • Employees to get the most out of performance management and development conversations
