Performance Development

Philosophy

Performance development is the ongoing process between supervisor and employee of communicating and clarifying position responsibilities, priorities and performance expectations to guarantee mutual understanding and to enhance effectiveness in achieving the campus and departmental mission and goals. Whereas a performance appraisal is just one step, usually occurring on an annual basis, performance development is more holistic, involving greater communication efforts, using evaluation and feedback throughout the year. The process encourages a "coaching" style of management with frequent feedback. It also focuses on teamwork and adding value to the organization. Performance development improves performance and skill development, but is not tied to compensation or promotion in order to ensure that it is developmental as opposed to judgmental.
