As we look forward to 2021, it’s time for us to reflect on the challenges we’ve faced and our achievements over this past year. Performance appraisals provide a structured format to do so that helps individuals evaluate where they’re at and articulate where they want to go.

Performance appraisals continue to be employee-led, with staff members completing a self-assessment first. Leaders then take this assessment into consideration when completing the final appraisal. This helps individuals be accountable for, and take control of, their own growth and development.

Self-appraisals will open on Jan. 11 and close Jan. 25. Supervisors will then have from Jan. 26 to Feb. 11 to complete their performance appraisals. Instructional sessions specifically for supervisors will be announced in January. If you’re interested in learning more about the performance appraisal process and how to complete a self-assessment, then sign up for one of our instructional sessions below:

  • 9-10 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 9
  • 10-11 a.m. Friday, Dec. 11
  • 3:30-4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 15
  • noon-1 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 16
  • 11 a.m.-noon Thursday, Dec. 17
  • 2-3 p.m. Monday, Dec. 21

We will also be hosting come-and-go support sessions while self-appraisals are open. Specific dates and times will be announced in Centralities when we come back from winter break.
