The University's Performance Management Program encourages ongoing communication between supervisors and employees in order to understand and align individual performance goals that support the mission of the department and the University. Supervisors are encouraged to partner with employees to set goals and provide ongoing feedback throughout the year to acknowledge accomplishments and contributions, as well as clarify expectations and development opportunities. Supervisors are required to have thoughtful, clear, and meaningful annual performance appraisal discussion with all employees whom they directly supervise and have. The appraisal must be summarized in a written memo or appraisal form. Performance evaluations are also used in determining merit increases.
