Re: Launch of the Deferred 2015 Annual Performance Assessment for Professional & Managerial and Confidential staff

With reference to the message of May 7, 2015, I’m writing to announce the launch of the deferred 2015 Performance Assessment Process in the Halogen software.

What is the deferred performance assessment process?

The deferred performance assessment process is identical to the annual performance assessment process for the Professional & Managerial and Confidential Staff groups; however, it is administered under different timelines.

Due to a variety of reasons some employees were not available to complete the 2014 / 2015 performance assessment process last year. Therefore, we are now launching the Halogen system to this particular group.

More information about the performance assessment process for Professional & Managerial staff and Confidentials staff can be found at the HR & Equity website at

What is the timeline for the deferred 2014 / 2015 performance assessment process?

The deferred 2015 performance assessment process will commence on January 4, 2016. The performance assessment requires both an employee and a manager to complete various sections of the assessment and submit it for Divisional review and approval no later than February 5, 2016. The assessment process needs to be completed in the Halogen system by February 29, 2016, with final employee comments.

What are the steps of the online assessment process?

The online performance assessment process includes an activity report from the employee, a detailed assessment of performance from the manager and an opportunity for employees to provide final comments. The Employee Guide and Reviewer Guide provide further details about the assessment process.

How do I get access “Halogen Performance Assessment” tool?

  • Log into Halogen now and start to complete the online Goal Setting process.
