Andrew Roberts / 2017-08-11 5 0

Annual employee 'Professional Development Reviews' (or PDRs for short) are well established in most organisations. Characterised by a rush of activity at the beginning of the year to align to company and individual performance goals and then hasteily completed or fudged at the year end.
