Performance Management Training Opportunities

The performance management process is a collaborative partnership between an employee and their supervisor. It is a year-round process of defining expectations, maintaining open communication, providing continuous coaching and feedback, linking goals to organizational needs, and evaluating performance. At a minimum of once per year, this documented process will formally assess and rate the employee’s performance. 

HR & Payroll will offer standalone trainings on performance management beginning in late August. Targeted sessions will be offered for supervisors and non-supervisors in both live and virtual formats. Please review the following details, including learning objectives and how to register. If you have questions, please contact Andrew Lane, Director of Performance Management and Employee Engagement, at
