What is Performance Enabling?

At Swansea, we are committed to a culture of Performance Enabling, which supports employees to achieve their potential, succeed in their roles and thereby delivers the University’s key strategic themes. 

Performance Enabling is a range of related approaches that help to:   

  • Clarify expectations of roles and the standard of performance required.
  • Ensure that colleagues are clear on key organisational objectives and their part in contributing to these.
  • Provide the appropriate support, feedback, coaching and skilling to enable individuals to perform to their maximum level.
  • Remove any barriers that prevent colleagues from performing.
  • Demonstrate that those who perform well are recognised and those who under-perform are challenged.
