Performance Reviews

The purpose of the Performance Review is to maximize employee work efforts to achieve University, organizational, and individual objectives through the active participation in the goal-setting process; to ensure that all employees receive a timely and objective review of their job performance each year; to identify employees whose job-related performance and conduct does not meet established objectives or contribute effectively to the University; and to ensure that job performance is measured effectively for compensation purposes.

Performance Review Procedure

The process of job performance evaluation should include the following steps:

  1. Set and communicate job expectations at the start of the review period. Use the employee's job description to review the expectations of the job. If the job description needs revision, contact Human Resources for assistance.
  2. Provide ongoing coaching and counseling during the review period and document significant discussions regarding positive achievements and needed improvement in regard to job performance or conduct.
  3. Conduct the annual performance review at the end of the review period.
