Phase 1 - Performance Planning
Phase 2 - Performance Management
Phase 3 - Performance Evaluation
Phase 1 - Performance Planning - is conducted for all full time classified employees during the months of October and November each year. During the planning phase the work assignments and standards for performing those assignments are reviewed, revised if needed and finalized for the up-coming performance cycle. The plan is established and certified using the position description in the PAPERS software program by December 1 each year.
Phase 2 - Performance Management - is the on-going, continuous process of monitoring and documenting performance and communicating about performance with the employee. Supervisors are encouraged to establish a routine for providing regular feedback to employees – including recognizing successes and advising employees when improvement is needed. Mid-cycle Interim Evaluations are required in some departments – and strongly encouraged for all.
Phase 3 - Performance Evaluation – is an annual activity performed during September – October. In this phase, the employee's performance during the entire cycle is summarized and documented on the Evaluation screens in the PAPERS software program. Ratings and comments are provided for individual assigned tasks and an overall rating and comments are provided.Once Phase 3 is concluded, the whole process begins again with planning for the next performance cycle.
