With the October deadline looming for the finalisation of this year's performance reviews, now is the time to practise our newly-acquired skills, says deputy vice-chancellor Professor Thandabantu Nhlapo, chairperson of the Personal Performance System (PPS).
This follows the wrapping up of the PPS training workshops for staff and line managers, conducted over nine weeks and 149 sessions.
A total of 1 053 (55%) PASS staff in pay classes 5-12 attended the workshops. An additional 32 staff members in pay class 13, and 56 academic staff, also participated. In total, there were 1 141 attendees.
"The responses to the workshops were generally very good, with over 90% of the respondents rating them as satisfactory or above," said Nhlapo. "Resource materials were made available during the sessions, and these will assist staff and line managers to apply the PPS. These materials are available online, on the Staff and HR website link on the UCT home page."
Over half of UCT staff are now equipped with the resources and skills to utilise the PPS appropriately. Plans are already being made to run further workshops in the future to accommodate those who have not yet attended.
