Effective performance management aligns the efforts of managers and employees with
departmental and campus goals, promotes consistency in performance review, motivates
all employees to perform at their best, and is conducted with fairness and transparency.
The employee, the manager, and the University are critical members of a partnership
that ensures performance planning, review, coaching, and development.
- Employees at all levels are responsible for actively communicating with their managers
about their performance, taking an active role in planning for development, being
accountable for their actions, and continually striving for excellence in their performance
in support of departmental and campus goals.
- Managers are responsible for developing and reviewing performance expectations with
their employees, communicating throughout the performance management cycle about employees'
goals, performance, and development, recognizing successful performance and coaching
for improved performance, and ensuring that employees have the tools, resources, training,
and development needed to carry out their duties successfully.
- The University is responsible for providing an effective and fair performance management
system that encourages effective communication between employees and managers and
ensures that managers have the skills to carry out performance management successfully.
