Performance Appraisals


It is expected that Merit and P&S employees receive a formal review of their performance annually. The performance appraisal meeting serves as a collaborative planning session during which both the supervisor and employee can take an in-depth look at past and current performances and can together set new goals and objectives for the coming year. Performance appraisals are to be conducted annually; however, a more frequent assessment of performance may be arranged as required. Additionally, Merit and P&S employees may also request a performance appraisal at any time.

There is annual education offered, along with several documents to assist employees and supervisors in this process. The actual review is a dedicated opportunity to comment on an employee's performance; however, it should be a continual process. The education offered will help supervisors see the benefits of offering feedback and conducting performance appraisals. Expanding the understanding of the goal setting process, documenting performance using a critical incident form, and also focus on preparing, conducting and following-up to a performance appraisal are all covered topics.

Remember, the actual Performance Evaluation is just one part of the ongoing cycle.
