Staff Performance Evaluation:

The performance management process is intended to create an ongoing dialogue between the supervisor and employee.  This process enhances the supervisor/employee relationship by incorporating clear communication and constructive feedback throughout the performance review period.  The Human Resources department recognizes the PCER (Plan, Coach, Evaluate, and Reward) model for facilitating the performance management process.  For more information, see the PCER Model. 

Process for 2016-2017:

While non-faculty performance evaluations will be administered through the Portal Access for Total HR (PATH) online through Single Sign On, paper forms will be used to acknowledge certifications not currently available online.  The following form is to be used by the Supervisor to prepare for and complete the annual non-faculty employee evaluation as required by System Regulation 33.99.03 and Standard Administrative Procedure 33.99.03.M0.01
