Performance Management Process

cycle_2011Effective performance evaluation involves communication between the employee and the supervisor of expectations, goals, and the standards for measuring performance. The employee needs to know the supervisor’s expectations and how the outcomes will be measured. The supervisor needs to assure that the employee is aware of his/her expectations and has a complete understanding of the job duties for the position. The Performance Management Process (PMP) provides a structure for employees and supervisors to communicate regarding performance issues and plan for professional development.

The Performance Management Process is an ongoing one. Supervisors should initially meet with new employees within the first week after the start date to begin the process. Ongoing feedback should be provided to review progress and reassess needs and goals.
