P_HR_49 Managing Employee Performance and Capability Policy

The purpose of this policy is to enable matters relating to performance and capability to be dealt with objectively and equitably.  Informal communications and regular management supervision between manager and employee are essential in addition to the more formal consultation procedures described within this policy.

The organisation encourages employees to achieve and maintain an acceptable level of performance in their work. It attaches great importance to staff selection procedures, induction and on-going in-service training to ensure that those appointed are able to satisfactorily carry out the duties required of them and equipped with the necessary skills.

This Capability Policy is in place to ensure staff uphold the Trust Mission, Vision and Values by ensuring high standards of performance within individual roles is maintained and where shortfalls exist that these are managed appropriately to limit potential harm to the organisations reputation.
