All Professional Services functions at Swansea University operate to a defined set of Core Values and it is an expectation that everyone is able to demonstrate a commitment to these values from the point of application through to the day to day delivery of their roles.
Having the right values will help us improve services, and achieve our aims. To help people understand how the values affect them, a set of expectations have been drawn up to give examples of the sorts of actions, attitudes and behaviours that would either support or undermine the values.
You can find more information on the values and the values expectations here .
From September 2015, all staff who have values within their job descriptions, will have values embedded into their PDR or probation processes.
Staff will be asked to fill in a short questionnaire to assess their own performance against the values behaviours. Managers will also complete an assessment, and the two taken together are intended to form the basis of a meaningful and productive PDR or probation conversation.
