Re: 2015 Annual Performance Assessment Process launching in coming weeks

This is to inform colleagues and their respective managers that the annual performance assessment process starts on May 25, 2015 for those in the Professional & Managerial, Confidential and Advancement Professional employee groups. The process for Research Associates and Senior Research Associates will launch in June.

Annual Performance Assessment is an important means of clarifying expectations, focusing priorities and discussing opportunities for development of employees.

The 2015 provincial budget included an expectation of continued compensation restraint and we are currently looking at how we will meet this expectation for the current year.

The process will use the online Performance Assessment Tool adopted last year for PM and Confidential staff. This year, Research Associates & Senior Research Associates will join that group.

Advancement Professionals will continue to use the paper performance assessment forms, with plans to move that group to the online tool in 2016.

Further details on this year’s process will be available in the coming weeks. I thank you in advance for your support with this important process.
