It is important for leaders to have frequent, candid performance conversations with their staff, using the techniques of coaching, modeling, reinforcing, and providing feedback. It is the mutual responsibility of the manager and staff member to work together to develop individual goals.
The University has a three-month introductory period,* in which the manager and staff member may evaluate whether the employment relationship meets initial expectations. This period starts on the day of hire and concludes with the completion of the Three-Month Performance Review in Workday.
The annual review process allows a worker and manager to establish goals at the beginning of the year; evaluate goals mid-year; and respond to goals, responsibilities, and ratings at the end of the year. Log into Workday to access, launch, and review these performance management templates.
*The introductory period may be extended for up to an additional three months, if necessary. In addition to new hires, the introductory period applies to promotions and transfers.
