Staff members will engage in performance reviews with their immediate supervisors annually during the summer months. The conversations will be centered on achievements that help supervisors and employees agree on strengths and areas for improvement. These forward-thinking discussions will allow for an understanding of expectations and encourage open-dialogue aimed at reaching departmental and personal goals.  

As part of this process, please review and update job descriptions as needed.  Completed Performance Review documents and updated job description must be submitted electronically to by no later than August 31, 2022.
