Performance Management

Performance Evaluations are conducted on an annual basis to encourage open communication between supervisor and employee.

Performance Evaluations For Administrators and Support Staff

In 2013 the President asked the Human Resource Department to lead the Non-Academic Program Reviews for all non-academic positions at Shawnee State University.  This initiative was to complement the academic program reviews already underway.  The purpose of these reviews was to position SSU’s non-academic employees for the roles of the future.
The goals for the Non-Academic Program Reviews are:
  • Create a clear set of duties, qualifications, and competencies required (the “position profile”) for today’s roles, as well as those in the future;
  • Once these position profiles are created, they will be used for staff development discussions as well as selection criteria for new employees.
The majority of job descriptions (position profiles) for non-academic staff have now been created and the training of staff on performance management is now underway.  If you have not attended this training, please contact Beth Lansky ASAP to get scheduled.  It is important that you attend this training.

  • Supervisor should meet with employee to clarify job responsibilities and expectations and to agree on plan for 2015-2016
  • Supervisor enters plan in PeopleAdmin
  • Throughout the year, both employee and supervisor should periodically take time to re-read goals and assess whether performance matches
  • Both employee and supervisor should use private “Progress Notes”
