Performance Management Staff Performance Review

Beginning January 2019, the University will be using a new platform on connectU.

Every staff member contributes to the overall success of our University.  All staff members, no matter how skilled, need opportunities for continued learning and success.  Both employees and supervisors have a responsibility to actively participate in the performance management process.  The process includes planning for performance by setting clearly defined objectives (individual goals), on-going coaching (formal and informal), and highlighting success, while emphasizing the importance of follow-through.  This process aligns with the University’s mission, specifically providing opportunities for learning, discovery, and engagement.

To prepare, supervisors and employees will discuss, agree and enter the employee’s objectives for 2019.  Entered the objectives in connectU by January 31, 2019.

Training is available in December and January

To Review 2018 Performance

Employees appreciate feedback and supervisors/managers are encouraged to provide feedback on this past years performance. However, a formal review is not required as we transition to our new program.  If supervisors decide to conduct formal reviews for 2018 – 2019, managers may choose the abbreviated form or the form with more areas to provide ratings.  However, for fairness and consistency within the department, the preferred form must be used for the entire department.

Employees hired prior to October 1, 2018 are eligible for the annual performance review/appraisal.
