FY21 performance reviews will be due to HR this year by November 19th.
Annual performance review details below were sent via email to UNH Managers and Supervisors from Kathy Neils, CHRO on July 7, 2021.
Effective performance feedback links directly to the university meeting its mission and strategic initiatives. People are our greatest asset, our largest investment, and our resource for success! While feedback should be ongoing, once a year we commit to a more formalized process that considers a broader timeframe, acknowledging accomplishments, sharing challenges impacting performance, suggesting supports and development, and ways performance can be enhanced. The annual performance review is also an important time to review goals and establish new ones. As we all know this year especially will be important to hear from your employees the successes and struggles that they encountered regarding the pandemic this year related to their performance.
Performance feedback is strategic and two-way. How an employee reflects on their performance and makes suggestions on goals is an important aspect in creating effective dialogue between the supervisor and direct report. Much insight can be gained from the annual process on how to coach performance throughout the year.
Due dates for completing annual performance reviews are set by each unit of the university according to their business needs. The overarching deadline for all reviews to be completed and submitted to Human Resources is Friday November 19th. Deans and unit leaders will communicate the date that works best for their departments. We will track reviews received and provide updates to the President's Leadership Council with the desired outcome of 100% participation.
Review forms are available on the HR website here: Coaching for Performance
