Performance Management is a process that brings together many people management practices including learning and development. It is a process which contributes to the effective management of individuals and teams in order to achieve improved levels of individual and organisational performance and development. Performance management is about establishing a culture where individuals and teams take responsibility for continuous improvement of service delivery and of their own skills, behaviour and contributions.
The HSE is introducing a formal Performance Management System in fulfilment of the terms of the Public Service Agreement. The system will cover all grades and professional disciplines and will be introduced on a phased basis commencing with National Directors to grade VIII and equivalent including comparable clinical grades in 2012.
A Guidance Document on the Performance Management System has been developed. This document contains background information on Performance Management, guidance for managers and individuals and related forms. Supporting material is also available in the suite of Appendices.
