Frequently Asked Questions

Eligible Employees? (Who needs a performance review?)

A year-long performance review form available online on connectU was created for employees hired prior to 10/1/2018.

  • Newly hired employees of the University, hired on or after 10/1/2019 and 3/30/2019 will have a performance review form available in September 2019 and in the December for the year-end review, in addition to the probationary review.
  • Employees hired after on or after 4/1/2019 will be eligible for the year-long review in 2020.  The probationary review will be the mechanism for feedback in 2019.

Are the quarterly reviews and mid-year review mandatory?

The quarterly check-in (March and September) and mid-year review (June/July) are not mandatory; however the year-end review is required and it will be more meaningful if the employee and supervisor participate throughout the year.

My listed organization chart is incorrect.
