Annually, the university asks supervisors and managers to engage in formal job performance dialogues and written performance reviews with their direct reports. This process provides employees with an opportunity to express their achievements and challenges, and for supervisors and managers to recognize achievements, clarify expectations, identify needed improvements, and establish goals.
The review process promotes alignment of our work with the goals of departments and mission of the university. Making feedback formal once a year is a strategic element in our continued success. It supports retention of our most important asset - our employees – through clear communication around job performance.
Each unit of the university can set due dates that meet their business needs. However, FY18 reviews must be submitted to Human Resources no later than October 19, 2018. Deans and unit leaders will communicate the date that works best for your department. Outstanding reviews will be reported to Cabinet/Deans weekly toward achievement of a 100% participation goal.
Review forms are available here: Coaching for Performance
As a reminder, your HR Partner is available to help answer questions about reviews and performance challenges. Please visit https://www.unh.edu/hr/partners for your HR Partner contact information.
