To provide all regular university employees and their supervisors an opportunity to discuss the employee's job performance, set goals for professional development, and establish objectives for contributing to the department's mission.
The performance review is designed to provide a fair assessment of an employee's job performance. The supervisor and employee should discuss the employee's job duties, expectations for the employee's performance, and goals for the coming year. To accomplish a fair and balanced assessment, both the employee and the supervisor will have an opportunity to express their opinions about the employment relationship. During the annual performance review, the supervisor and employee should make plans for the employee's professional development activities to be accomplished during the next review period.
Formal performance reviews occur annually for all university employees, preferably from January through March, to coincide with budget planning. The completed performance review summary forms are sent to human resources, entered into IRIS, retained in the employees' official personnel files, and used in providing information for performance-based salary increases when available.
During the first six months of an employee's regular employment, the supervisor conducts a written performance review with the employee. This review is sent to human resources to be included in the employee's official personnel file.
