Performance Management


Performance Management is the continuous process of identifying, measuring, and developing employee skills and performance.

The Department of Human Resources is committed to designing Performance Management processes that foster an environment in which managers and employees can regularly communicate about departmental and individual goals and accomplishments in service of creating a culture of engagement, accountability, and excellence.

Updated Performance Management Process

The Staff/AAP Annual Performance Review process will transition into GMS, effective March 1, 2019.
Automating our performance review process will centralize all performance data and replace our annual paper evaluation review process, while fostering performance transparency and communication between employees and managers. Both an employee’s Self Evaluation and his/her Manager's Evaluation are mandatory and must be completed in the system.  Annual performance reviews must be completed in GMS for all non-union regular and term administrative employees hired prior to February 28, 2019, who have successfully completed any applicable probationary period. This change will enable on-demand view access and submission, and it will allow managers and employees to easily track performance data and goals, as well as assess career development opportunities.

The transition will not entail any changes to the existing performance rating structure. However, this year’s review period has been advanced by one month in order to better accommodate all campus needs. As such, this year’s review period will be an eleven month period from April 1, 2018 to February 28, 2019. 

The Department of Human Resources will provide extensive opportunities for in-person and webinar training, beginning January 28, 2019.  Training sessions will continue through the end of the performance evaluation period on May 1, 2019.
