To all staff and A&P faculty:

Summer is coming, and so are performance evaluations! Starting today, you can complete your self-evaluations for 2012-2013 and begin planning goals for the 2013-2014 performance management cycle.

The annual evaluation window runs from June 3 through September 30. Schools and units establish their own internal deadlines within that time period, so check with your manager or HR professional to make sure you know your area’s specific due dates.

In response to your feedback, we recently added a “My Past Reviews” section on your dashboards in Lead@UVa. There you will find previous years’ goals and accomplishments, which are helpful as you plan goals for the 2013-2014 performance cycle.

The annual evaluation process is an opportunity for you to document progress toward your goals and competencies. The annual evaluation is just one part of an ongoing, year-long series of conversations. It helps employees know what is expected of them, how they are doing, and how they contribute to the University; it helps managers measure employee success, have a basis for coaching and rewarding employees, and motivate their teams from year to year. HR has resources to help you understand the process, including recommended timelines, overviews of the entire performance cycle, training, and a useful toolkit including assistance in writing SMART Goals.
