Manager Resources - Overview

Performance Management

Performance management is an essential component of your role as a supervisor. Managing performance is an ongoing process and if done properly, ensures that employees have the tools they need to succeed. If employees are effective, efficient and establish collegial relationships, we can ensure that the vision and mission of your department and the university are achieved.   The links below will assist you in better understanding how to motivate and guide your employees and deal with performance issues. Your Human Resources Partner (HRP) is a strategic partner in helping you maximize employee performance and determine what tools are appropriate to meet your needs. Prior to implementing any performance management, consult with your HRP regarding a review of the HR personnel file, contract interpretation as well as appropriate courses of action. Performance management and discipline are decided as a team and may involve coordinating additional resources including, but not limited to the Office of Equal Opportunity.
