Performance Evaluation

The performance evaluation period for employees follows the university’s calendar year from Jan 1 to Dec 31 each year. 

*All regular staff, administrators and faculty follow the same performance evaluation timeline.

Performance Evaluation Training 

Register for upcoming performance evaluation training sessions through the Employee Success Center or watch a previous recording (you must log in using your UofL login to access the recording).

The Employee Success Center 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

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. Note: Supervisors of employees who have moved out of their units must touch base with the employee's new supervisor to discuss the employee's goals for the following year.
