Performance Management Process
Performance management is the ongoing process of monitoring and developing employee skills and performance. When practiced consistently, performance management supports employees in their development as professionals, which in turn leads to a high performing, engaged workforce.
Performance Review Process
The annual Staff and AAP Performance Review process takes place within GMS. The annual review process involves an evaluation based on core competencies, along with a review of goals from the past year. The list of competencies and their descriptions, as well as other related terms and tools, can be found here.
The annual performance review period is March 1 – February 28.
Annual Review Process
The Annual Performance Review process creates an opportunity for managers and employees to discuss departmental and individual goals, recognize challenges accomplishments from the prior year and to plan for professional development in the year ahead. This is also an opportune time to reflect on how new ways of working and communicating may shape and inform shared goals and how to achieve them.
Who is eligible?
Regular/Term Administrative employees hired prior to March 1 who have successfully completed any applicable probationary period.
