Responsible unit: Human Resources Office

At Stockholm University an annual personal development discussion is held with each member of staff. This discussion is a prepared, structured and annual dialogue between an individual member of staff and his or her immediate superior.

Purpose
The purpose of the personal development discussion is to develop both the work of the organisation and of the employee and in this way create good prerequisites for a well functioning university.

Responsibilities
The head of department (or equivalent) has the responsibility to ensure that annual personal development discussions take place. This does not mean that the head of department must conduct the personal development discussion personally. The person conducting the discussion should be a person with salary-setting authority and/or the immediate superior of the member of staff and be an individual who is familiar with and can affect the work situation of the staff member.

Instructions
Detailed instructions for personal development discussions are issued by the human resources manager.
