Performance management is an ongoing process throughout the year, with a formal performance review conducted annually. The intent is to communicate and review job performance expectations, provide constructive feedback, document accomplishments, and jointly formulate performance development plans.
Both employees and managers should be working together in their jobs for a minimum of 6 months before completing an annual review. Please contact Human Resources with any questions.
Completing the Review in MyDay
The performance review will now be conducted in MyDay. This will be a significant change for both managers and employees.
This is a great opportunity to reflect on the past year, acknowledge accomplishments, identify areas that may need some improvement, and engage in discussion about professional development, career goals, and plans for the next year.
MyDay allows for increased transparency in the review process both in terms of content and process. The goals and feedback sections are new functionality and new concepts in this community. Human Resources strongly encourages all managers to become familiar with these new functions by reviewing all training materials and attending a training session. There are training sessions designed particularly for
