Recent research suggests that up to 37% of time at work is spent on tasks that have limited impact on organisational goals. If it were possible to increase these productivity levels by just 2%, this would be an efficiency saving (in an average UK University) of £7.7 million per year, every year.
Performance For All is a self-developed project, we do not seek, nor do we have, any central funding. A number of universities have simply come together, around a need to develop practical solutions to the performance management challenge. We wish to create a tool that can meet some, or all, of the challenges faced by our diverse sector.
Deliver an online performance management solution for universities which takes into account:
The academic and business support environments and culture
The current pressures facing universities
The need to start simply (perhaps moving current forms on-line) and build functionality over time
Change management requirements
The technology available
Existing university HR systems
The challenges facing the sector through the impact of TEF, REF, Brexit and the changing cultural and economic landscape.
Individually the solutions will save time and money, manage essential processes and provide valuable insights that motivate people to focus their efforts to achieve your key institutional priorities.
Put together, the system connects people and their institutions, setting off a continuous process of enhancement and improvement. It achieves new levels of engagement and motivation within a workforce and beyond, providing the momentum for improved productivity, performance, efficiency and change.
Provide the following outcomes:
An effective cloud based environment into which current ‘paper’ based processes can move quickly in order to immediately increase efficiency and save money.
A tool that can automate the process from the centre, collate participation rates, and make communication of staff review, workload, learning and objectives simpler.
A method of improving the quality of engagement and an opportunity to link individual with team, department and organisational outcomes.
A way of making sure that people, teams and the organisation are happy that they are ‘on target’ to meet agreed objectives and offer support before problems arise.

A way to communicate and monitor essential training in areas such as diversity, data protection and safety.
A way to promote competency and behaviour frameworks in a way that makes sense to people and adds value to their role.
An opportunity to harness the power of such data in order to develop corporate succession planning, learning needs and skills audit processes into the future.
