Staff Development Dialogue (SDD)

Why do we conduct SDDs at AU?

We conduct SDDs in order to establish a connection between AU’s strategic, long-term objectives and competence needs, and the employee’s own expectations in relation to career and work life.

Good staff development dialogues lead to more satisfied, motivated and skilled employees. This benefits the individual employee, but also Aarhus University.

Staff development dialogue in mitHR

AU's SDD concept is available in mitHR.

The purpose of the SDD and the overall themes in the dialogue are the same, but the process and dialogue guides have been adjusted. The adjustments are based on the notion that a rewarding and relevant SDD requires good preparation by both the employee and the manager.
