Employees and their managers can view past performance evaluations in GMS by navigating to the employee profile in GMS and click “Performance” for the menu on the left side of the page.

Eligible employees, their direct Managers, and their Manager’s Manager. 

Union represented employees are not required to participate in this GMS process. Union represented employees should connect with their direct supervisor with  any questions.

Please reach out to your assigned HR Business Partner (HRBP) for more information regarding performance reviews for union-supported employees.

Speak with your direct supervisor to confirm your probationary status. Review the probationary period policy for more information.

The self-evaluation is a fully electronic process that will become available in your GMS (workday) inbox on February 20th, 2024. Employees will submit a self-evaluation first, which will be routed to their Manager who will conduct a Manager Evaluation. Then, these evaluations will be routed to the Manager’s Manager for approval. For a detailed explanation of this process, please attend our Performance Management: Self-Evaluations training.

After an employee completes their self-evaluation in GMS, it will route to the manager’s GMS inbox and generate an email notification to the manager.  The manager will then complete the manager evaluation in GMS. It will then route to the manager’s manager for approval.  Once the manager’s manager approves the evaluation, the manager will release the evaluation to the employee and prepare for a one-on-one performance evaluation meeting with their employee.

Please contact your HR Business Partner (HRBP) to confirm you are eligible for this year’s performance review process.
