How to conduct an appraisal of your senior officer - SHARE

Who’s it for and what’s it about?

Appraising your Director or Chief Executive’s performance is a task that is integral to the Committee’s role as the employer, is important for the senior officer’s development, is good practice, and is a requirement of the Scottish Housing Regulator as set out in the Regulatory Code of Governance.

How this is achieved is not prescriptive. So this short conversational session will focus on what a ‘good appraisal’ experience should look and feel like. In general and then more specifically at how best practice can be applied (and poor practice avoided!) when crafting an effective and engaging appraisal experience – for the Committee, Senior Officer and the organisation as a whole.
