Performance Appraisals

Performance Appraisals for 2018

In 2017, UFHR Employee Relations began a comprehensive review of the staff performance appraisal process. As part of the review, a decision was reached to forgo the mandatory March 2018 annual performance appraisal process for staff until a more effective, contemporary approach to providing evaluative feedback is identified.

As a result, because staff evaluations will not be required this March, evaluation ratings provided in 2017 will carry forward—for example, if an employee was rated at the “achieves” level in March 2017, that evaluative rating will be assumed to continue for March 2018 as well.

  • Managers may still elect to complete performance appraisals for their employees.
  • Evaluations should be completed for any employee for whom a change in rating has occurred. In order for a rating to be changed from 2017, it should have been signed and dated by March 31, 2018.
  • Employees who are in a probationary status should also receive performance appraisals before the end of their probationary periods.

Employee Relations will be communicating new developments regarding the staff performance appraisal process in the coming months.
