Staff Performance Appraisal Project: Documents

To learn more about the staff performance appraisal project, please see the project documents below.

The purpose of the staff performance appraisal process redesign is to simplify and standardize the process for supervisors and make performance appraisals more meaningful for staff. This project meets the campus’ desire to redesign, update, and standardize the process based on the IdeaWave campaign feedback received in late 2015. Upon completion of Phase I, the new process will have examined, revised, and implemented a new performance appraisal process that is simplified, standardized, and will align more appropriately with the annual merit based pay increase system.
