Performance Dialogue Process

The Performance Dialogue Process (PDP) provides an opportunity for meaningful communication between supervisors and employees about their work and contributions. The documents linked to this page correspond to two processes at Queen’s: the PDP for Grades 2 to 9 and the PDP for the Queen’s Managerial and Professional Group (QMPG).

The purpose of the performance dialogue is to:

  • Review objectives from the previous year and set objectives for the coming year
  • Provide a focus on feedback and a structure for ongoing coaching and communication between supervisor and employee
  • Review quality of work performance and personal contribution
  • Evaluate and develop staff performance to achieve agreed-upon objectives.
We recommend that you open PDF documents using an official Adobe product such as Adobe Reader. If you experience issues downloading the form or need assistance installing Adobe Reader, please contact the IT Support Centre.
