All staff employees. Temporary staff employees and staff employees who have been on a leave for more than one year as of the start of the annual performance process, as well as faculty are excluded from this Policy. All new hires, staff employee transfers, or promotions will be evaluated according to the introductory period policy.
The purpose of this Policy is to establish a consistent approach and operating philosophy for providing feedback and assessment of employee performance through annual evaluation.
Job Description: a description that documents the responsibilities, skills, competencies, essential functions, and duties associated with an employee’s position and defines the qualifications and requirements to perform those duties.
Supervisors conduct periodic evaluations of staff employee (hereinafter “employee”) performance, which then become a part of the employee’s personnel file. These evaluation files may be used for promotional opportunities.
Each supervisor will conduct an evaluation of employee performance annually. Among factors to be considered in the review are attendance, quality of work, meeting specific job duties as set forth in the Job Description, and performance goals, cooperation with fellow employees, willingness to learn, openness to change, and service skills. Evaluations may also be a tool in rewarding an employee with a pay increase however, pay increases depend on the University’s financial situation and are therefore never guaranteed.
