Learn about employee performance development, an integral part of UCSD’s performance appraisal process. Developing employees is a shared responsibility between supervisor and employee.
Employees have the principal responsibility for developing their skills, knowledge, and experience. The supervisor's responsibility is to assess, inform, refer, guide, and develop. When supervisors and employees identify performance development goals during annual performance appraisals, the object is to identify opportunities that enable employees to sustain, improve, and build upon past performance and contribute to organizational effectiveness.
Supervisors and department heads are encouraged to support employees' career development within their departments and the university. At the same time, they should exercise appropriate discretion and concern for equity and the operational needs of their departments. For information about addressing job-related, career-related, and educational enrichment professional development requests, see Implementing Procedure 50 (Professional Development) (PDF).
