One to one conversations and PDRs

One to one conversations happen at agreed intervals between individuals and their managers/supervisers. Regular one to ones allow us to:

  • check progress on tasks
  • problem solve
  • re-set objectives in the light of emerging opportunities
  • coach and develop people

PDRs can sometimes seem a little overwhelming to reviewers and reviewees: you may find it helpful to think of PDR simply as a "big" one to one conversation.


Please note that if you work in Maths, Physical and Life Sciences departments you may know PDR as Career Development Review or CDR.
