Instructions for Preparing the Annual Review

Instructions to Staff 
Please retrieve the 2020-21  the  performance review form located on the HR website for your self-review. After you finish your self-review, send the form to your supervisor for their review prior to your performance review meeting.

Instructions to Supervisors
Please plan ahead by having notes on your employee’s performance during the review period and desired goals for the upcoming year.  Once you receive your employee’s self-review, add your own comments in all sections and read their comments to prepare for the performance review meeting.   Best practice is to send the completed review to your employee prior to the scheduled meeting so both of you are prepared for meaningful discussion on the employee’s performance review. 

Some items supervisors and staff employees may want to review in preparation for the performance review are the job description, last year’s performance review, and any goals that were set in the review period.
