Staff Performance Management

Performance Management

  • Review the Performance Management Cycle (pdf - 26.7 KB) and the Performance Management Policy
  • Make sure you have an approved Work Plan in the AppState Jobs System.
    • You will need at least one (1) Expectation for each Functional Competency in the Annual Work Plan
  • Once you have the work plan approved by the employee in the system, then you are ready for the year end review in June.
  • Overall Performance rating is subjective based on performance results of the Expectations 
    • Scale stays the same:
      • Outstanding,
      • Very Good,
      • Good,
      • Below Good,
      • Unsatisfactory

Work Plan Process

  • Work Plans should be developed as a collaborative effort between the manager and employee.
  • The manager will then enter the Work Plan in AppState Jobs and electronically submit it to Employee for review
  • Employee will electronically “sign” the Work Plan thereby returning it to Manager.
  • Work Plans may be updated as needed through the cycle.

Performance Management Process

  • Manager and Employee will meet 1-on-1 to discuss Performance Review
  • Manager will electronically submit the Performance appraisal to the Employee for review
  • Employee will electronically “sign” acknowledgement that they have met with their manager to discuss performance.
  • Performance Appraisals will be reviewed and approved by the 2nd Level Manager & HR who will look for rating consistency, objective assessment, substantive explanations
