Employee work planning provides an opportunity for employees and supervisors to discuss an employee's work responsibilities.
It engages employees, and helps you understand how your work fits into the larger work of the ministry and of government.
Work planning occurs in three phases:
- A work plan is created after initial planning is done through a conversation with a manager or supervisor.
- Conversations occur throughout the year, with the expectation of a mid-year check-in to provide an opportunity to realign/adjust work if necessary.
- Year-end discussion to review progress and achievement of objectives and prepare for the next year's planning process.

The work plan process includes setting your own achievable work and learning objectives that align with Government direction. Work planning also clarifies what is expected of you and helps in setting and prioritizing projects and objectives.
A Work Planning and Review Form should be completed with the help of your manager or supervisor.
