Employee Performance Management

The performance management process is an on-going conversation involving both the supervisor and the employee.

At the start of working with an employee, it is recommended that a supervisor would use a tool(such as the one linked below) to track performance, foster connection, and focus on the development of an employee. A document such as the one below allows the supervisor to have ongoing documentation of performance management.

When a new employee reaches the 45 and 90 day markers, the supervisor and employee will have performance progress conversations. Prior to both conversations, the employee will submit their reflections and contributes to the conversation through the conversation guide. Forms will be emailed to the supervisor from the office of People and Culture near each date and are also available below:

It is recommended that supervisors continue to meet 1:1 with each of their employees consistently. Additionally, it would be useful to continue to use a tool such as the 1:1 Touchpoint Form to doucment these conversations.

Performance Improvement Resources

Occasionally, supervisors may need to address performance gaps or concerns. Two tools that supervisors could use are linked below. A PIP is used when a supervisor notices a skills gap, a performance gap, or a behavior change that needs to occur. A written warning is used when a PIP is not motivating change or a situation is particularly egregious.

It is recommended that a supervisor completes a rough draft of the tool they wish to use and then set up an appointment with a Business Partner in the office of People and Culture to review the document and prepare for the conversation.
