The review meeting is a key stage in the PDR process and involves a two-way discussion between the reviewer and the reviewee.

Setting up the Meeting

Agree a time and place at least four weeks before the proposed meeting date. The venue should provide privacy, freedom from interruptions and should allow the reviewee to relax.

Allow sufficient time (one to one and a half hours is typical for senior staff, 45 minutes to one hour for more junior staff).
