Performance and talent system for staff

The Performance and Talent (PAT) system is a new way for NSW Health staff to record performance and career development goals and capture performance reviews. It is designed to support the performance and development conversations and provide staff with improved ways to document their goals and capture performance reviews.

PAT enables NSW Health staff to record and store performance information online. It allows sharing of goals making it easier to ensure everyone is working towards NSW Health strategic and organisational outcomes. Because PAT is integrated with StaffLink, key personal and employment information is pre-populated, and the workflows between managers and their direct reports are automated.

PAT doesn’t replace the performance and talent development conversations between managers and staff, but it does support them. Having an online record makes it easier for staff to focus on their performance goals and reviews throughout the year, not ‘just’ during the performance review cycle. It also makes preparing for and following up on performance meetings easier and more effective.
