Performance Development Resources

The Government of the Northwest Territories recognizes the value of having a formalized government-wide performance management program in place to manage ongoing effectiveness of its employees, support their ongoing development, and to continue to ensure business objectives are being met. The Government of the Northwest Territories supports effective ongoing competency-based performance management for all staff as a means to reach these goals.
