Staff Performance Appraisal Project: Governance and Teams

Learn more about the staff performance appraisal project team structure.

The staff performance appraisal project consists of three pillars of governance teams to launch a new meaningful, simplified, and standardized performance appraisal process.

  • Thought Leadership Team: approves construct, phase structure, and methodology; ensures solution aligns with project mission.
  • Steering Committee: develops and recommends methodology; participate in workgroups that develop definitions and measurements; proposes tool design and functionality; ensures operational and administrative feasibility.
  • Workgroups and Implementation Teams: consists of Steering Committee and additional staff as needed, that will choose which workgroups to participate in to help with definitions and measurements; provide input into tool design and functionality; and ensure operational and administrative applicability.
