Performance Management

All Classified and Unclassified staff will be evaluated by an online performance evaluation. The evaluation includes collaborative goal setting using the SMART Goal technique, behavioral categories (competencies), a five-tier rating system, and performance discussions throughout the performance evaluation cycle.

Annual Performance Evaluations for Classified and Unclassified Staff

The offices of Human Resources and Academic Personnel will open performance evaluations once annually, generally in July. Managers/supervisors will receive an email that the online performance evaluation is open.

Performance feedback is a regular process in which managers/supervisors provide constructive guidance, encourage efficient and productive fulfillment of job duties, and identify when performance expectations are not met. An important part of performance feedback is thinking about supervision as an ongoing process, in which you:

  • Clearly communicate performance expectations regarding job duties and productivity, including:
    • Acknowledging positive performance, motivating staff, and focusing on employee strengths to enhance performance and productivity
    • Providing specific and timely feedback when performance does not meet expectations
  • Complete annual evaluations for all direct reporting staff members
  • Complete Professional Development Plans using the form provided
  • Encourage your employees to regularly communicate with you regarding challenges/roadblocks to completing job duties, individual performance feedback, and appropriate professional development opportunities

In addition, you may contact Employee and Labor Relations (513-529-0432) for assistance with managing performance.
