Members’ Briefing




To:       All Members

cc:       Group Executive Committee

Date: 1 April 2020



Summary: PCS has sought clarification on the deadlines for the completion of PDRs in Home Office


The GEC has received a number of queries regarding the deadlines for the completion of performance development reviews (PDRs) for the 2019 – 2020 reporting year. While it is preferable that PDRs are completed on time the Home Office HR have confirmed that they have agreed with business areas extensions of the deadline for the completion of PDRs and submission on Metis.


Deadlines are as follows:


Business Area Deadline
C&R, DDAT, CPFG 30 April (with some flexibility in exceptional circumstances)
BF, HMPO, UKVI, IE, OSCT, SOC, BICSPI and Comms 30 June


It is now more important than ever that managers and their team members have regular conversations and that members are provided with ongoing support, guidance and feedback in relation to their performance as we respond to the challenges of COVID-19. If you are working from home, please use Skype or phone to hold your end of year reviews and 121s. PCS are aware that members may be feeling anxious and unsettled about the measures that the government has put in place to protect lives and managers should be alert to feelings of isolation and stress.
