Performance Management

Performance management is a process, the goal of which is to improve employee performance, and ultimately, to improve the organization. Performance management involves both the employee and the supervisor working on an ongoing basis to achieve pre-established performance goals and expectations. It includes activities such as communicating expectations, observing employee performance and giving feedback, and helping employees build on current strengths and develop needed skills.


When are Performance Evaluations Required?

Performance evaluations are required at least annually for budgeted faculty and staff positions. The performance review program will begin on April 1, 2022 and will cover employee performance from June 2021 through May 2022. Performance evaluations are due June 30, 2022.

  • New staff employees are required to have a performance evaluation completed within the first four months of employment.
  • Existing employees who have been promoted are required to have an evaluation completed within the first 90 days of the promotion.
  • Student workers must be evaluated before a pay raise can be submitted. Periodic evaluation of a long-term student worker is recommended as part of that worker's development.

How do I Complete my Performance Evaluation?

All performance evaluations are in Workday and can be accessed by clicking the Performance Worklet on your Workday Home page. For evaluations conducted prior to the use of Workday, you will need to check with your supervisor or email Employee Services Training and Development for a copy.
