Performance Reviews

Your annual review is an opportunity for recognition and feedback. It enables you to formally capture a snapshot of your performance, clarify expectations, and agree on priorities for the upcoming year.

Watch the 30 minute "Making the Most of the Performance Review Process" webinar for tips and resources on how to make the process work for you. The webinar, designed for both supervisors and individual contributors, will help make your review process productive and effective.

Key Activities

  1. You initiate the review process by emailing your goal agreement (DOC) and the performance review form (DOC) (with the self-assessment fields completed) to your supervisor. Please note that research employees should use the research review form (DOC).
  2. Your supervisor will complete your review and read your goal agreement in preparation for the performance discussion.
  3. To ensure quality and consistency, your supervisor will obtain a "Next Level Approval" signature on the review form before the performance discussion takes place. 

Supervisors should access the individual performance page for help clarifying expectations for key performance factors and reference the using the performance review form tool (PDF) for help writing performance reviews.
