The annual performance development plan assigns specific tasks and goals to each employee. Beyond this, professional development plans also represent a critical two-way commitment between an employee and the organization. Use this template to:
- Document employee strengths and weaknesses as determined by the performance review process.
- Identify skills gaps in the organization that the employee could fill.
- Itemize a training action plan with clear deliverables and time frames for achievement.
Professional development plans are essential to building trust and job satisfaction. Put in the effort to get training commitments in writing to help actualize development areas identified in the annual performance evaluation process.
