Performance Appraisal Process

Performance Review

The performance review is a communication tool designed to support each individual's contribution to the University. The review provides a way to measure skills and accomplishments with reasonable accuracy and uniformity. It provides a way to help identify obstacles to top performance. It should help identify areas for professional growth. It should not, however, be considered the supervisor's only communication tool. Open lines of communication throughout the year help to make effective working relationships.

Each employee is entitled to a thoughtful and careful review. The success of a performance review depends on the supervisor's willingness to complete a constructive and objective assessment, and on the employee's willingness to respond to constructive criticism and to work with the supervisor to overcome performance barriers.

Completing Reviews Online in PeopleAdmin’s Performance Module

Supervisors are expected to complete an annual online performance review for all staff employees.

Non-represented staff reviews must be completed online electronically or completed online by uploading the completed paper forms released by Human Resources, Diversity & Multicultural Affairs (HRDMA) in March 2016. Both processes cover the same content.

Represented/Unionized staff should have a review completed online by uploading documents outlined in the applicable collective bargaining agreement.
