This past July, the University introduced enhancements to the annual staff performance evaluation process. These changes will affect staff evaluations University-wide for the current review period.
- For campus staff, this change will apply to evaluations for the current calendar-year review period (which ends December 31, 2013).
- For UK HealthCare staff, the enhanced evaluation will apply to the current 2013-14 fiscal review period, which began July 1, 2013 and ends June 30, 2014.
Upcoming changes reflect recommendations from a performance evaluation task force appointed by President Capilouto earlier this year. The task force’s overarching recommendations included:
- expanding ongoing employee-supervisor communications.
- reinforcing and supporting those behaviors and competencies that support and fulfill the University’s values and mission.
- launching an online solution that advances these goals while also providing a platform for individual goal-setting, development and feedback.
The PE site provides further background detail on how the enhanced performance evaluation will affect you, as well as useful information regarding training and guides for using the new system. We appreciate your support for this initiative!
