PDR Survey

Thanks to all of those who took part in the PDR Survey. It took on average just 44 seconds to complete, so it’s never been easier or quicker to have your say and make a positive contribution to change.

In all 3 statements there were a higher % of negative responses than positive ones, the biggest difference was in the statement “I find the current PDR process easy to use, 28% being positive and 50% negative.

The overall satisfaction score for the current process was 5.2 out of 10, so certainly room for improvement.

The PDR process is currently under review, which given the results of the 2023 survey is certainly a good thing. During the review we have held roadshows and consulted with various staff groups such as the Engagement Ambassadors. These consultations really helped shape the new process to ensure it gets maximum reward with minimum red tape. Hopefully the 2024 results will show a marked improvement following the implementation of the new scheme.
