Performance management is a process that promotes conversation between supervisors and employees, as well as a tool to develop individual capacity and skill.
This process provides an important opportunity for a manager and employee to:
- recognize accomplishments and/or identify developmental needs;
- promote greater understanding of current and/or future goals (University, departmental, work unit), as well as, their specific role in facilitating achievement of these objectives; and
- discuss skills development/enhancement opportunities to encourage continuous learning and to enable career growth.
