photo description

Well that year certainly flew by – not sure where it went, but I do know many great things have happened (and I anticipate over the next year will continue to happen) within the Staff Council.

I want to acknowledge the great work by your elected Staff Council representatives. A BIG thank you to each of them and I encourage you to please take a moment to thank them for their service as well. At the Staff Council End-of-Year Luncheon yesterday, we recognized three representatives for particularly excellent work over the previous year. Continue reading...

Performance Appraisals and Merit: We Want Your Thoughts

photo descriptionStaff Council's Outreach Committee will be holding four focus groups this summer in order to learn about the experiences and perceptions of staff following the rollout of the new performance management process.

These focus groups are invite-only to ensure that the Outreach Committee hears a range of perspectives from across the entire university community. Participants will be selected randomly. If you receive an invitation, please consider attending if you can - we want to hear from you even if you didn't have a performance appraisal this year (and even if you have never had one)! Data from these focus groups is confidential, but anonymized comments will be shared with HRDMA to help improve the process in future years.

If you don't receive an invitation to a focus group, but you would still like to share your experience with the performance appraisal process or your thoughts on the merit pay structure at UVM, please email the Staff Council Office.As always, your comments are confidential.

Summer Events and Ticket Sales are Underway!
