Annual Review Conversation (ARC)

The Annual Review Conversation (ARC) is an opportunity for staff to have a discussion with their line manager, focusing on everything they need to thrive at work. Building on regular one-to-ones, the conversation is designed to be meaningful and constructive, recognising ongoing contributions and planning for the future based on individual and departmental needs and aspirations.

The conversation is at the centre of the ARC. The process has been set up to ensure that conversation is as effective and efficient as possible rather than get in the way of it. So, you may need to adapt the process to meet your needs.
