Performance Management

Overview

Annual performance evaluations are required for all Administrative & Professional and Classified staff. Recognizing the value of a robust and year-round performance management cycle, University Human Resources recently partnered with a university-wide steering committee to develop an updated system, complete with training for both supervisors and non-supervisors. 

Forms

The annual performance evaluation form [Word] should be completed for classified and administrative staff. The probationary performance evaluation form [Word] should be completed for classified staff during their probationary period.

As discussed in the training modules, supervisors and employees are encouraged to work together in drafting goals in alignment with position, departmental, unit, and university-wide needs and may use the Planning Tip Sheet (PDF) as a helpful tool. 

Note that all completed classified evaluations should be sent to the Employee Service Center in UHR. All completed Administrative & Professional evaluations should be sent to the respective planning unit head. Questions may be directed to: uhr@ohio.edu or 740.593.1636.
