Performance Management

Annual performance evaluations are a key component to employee performance and development. The objectives of annual performance evaluations are to provide employees and their supervisors an opportunity to discuss job performance, set goals, establish objectives for contributing to the department's mission, and discuss expectations and accomplishments. All wage adjustments are based upon satisfactory performance.  See the Managing and Evaluating Employee Performance presentation for additional information and resources when conducting annual performance evaluations.
