The Professional Development Department will be providing training to help managers and employees:

  • Understand how the performance evaluation works
  • Understand their role in the evaluation
  • Understand how to perform while working remotely 
  • Understand how to evaluate remote work
  • Learn how to coach and be coached/evaluated
  • How to work towards a common goal of team success
  • Know the guidelines/criteria of performance evaluation

Performance evaluation training, including evaluating remote work, will be available this Fall. Stay tuned!


Ongoing Evaluation

It is very important that managers and supervisors hold informal meetings about three times year (e.g. April, August, December) with employees to provide ongoing feedback on what they are doing well and where they may need development. Building those conversations in as a standard part of the management relationship will help ensure no surprises each year and should lead to stronger employee performance throughout the year.
