Additional Information

What happens if my manager and I cannot agree on objectives?

Your line manager has the final say on what objectives to set. However, if you strongly disagree with those set, or if you feel they are unachievable, all attempts should be made to try and resolve these differences informally. You can also note in the comments section in section 3 any concerns.

There is no appeal process, therefore you need to refer to the Grievance Policy if the difference cannot be resolved.


If you are unable to access the Ceri system, please discuss this with your line manager, who may be able to assist you in completing your section on Ceri.

What if I want to record additional information?

Employees may wish to include comments relating to exceptional achievements that were not included within the initial objectives set for the year. This should be noted in the final comments section at the end of the appraisal document.
