Performance Management

Annual Performance Appraisals for CY 2012

The Medical School is beginning the 2012 calendar year annual performance appraisal process for Civil Service and Labor Represented employees in January, 2013. Please check with your department HR representative when the P&A staff appraisal process will begin.

The performance appraisal is an important step in employee development and retention. It provides an opportunity to recognize an individual’s achievements, discuss areas for improvement, align expectations, establish priorities, and assist in enhancing two-way feedback between employees and supervisors.

100 percent completion remains our goal as we kick off our calendar year 2012 performance evaluation process. We hope to build on last year’s success by focusing on the quality of our reviews to ensure that they accurately and thoughtfully describe staff performance and accomplishments.

GENERAL Timeline

• HR will review appraisals for quality
• Performance appraisal meetings between employee and supervisor will be held in late February/early March
• All appraisals to be completed by the end of  March 2013
