PSA has almost concluded the facilitation of a program of approximately 60 performance management workshops covering 1150 staff members at the DUT.
These workshops commenced in September 2018 with the institution’s senior executive team and were then rolled out by level and by department to cover 79% of the total staff complement.
The workshops were designed to create awareness across the institution of the system to be implemented. The workshops covered the following areas alignment and cascading of target across the institution, 3 phases in the system-planning, review and appraisal, clarification of performance management terminology, use of a PoE and a practical exercise on all the above.
Staff feedback on the workshops has been very positive with 87.6 rating the content and presentation from ‘very good to excellent’.
The partnerships built between PSA and the institution (DUT) have grown stronger and stronger over time. Further opportunities have been identified to assist with building a performance culture backed by solid teamwork, improved morale and a structured and focused workplace with responsibilities aligned with DUT’s strategic vision.
