  • Performance Management for HR Administrators and Program Administrators
    • Performance Management Program Basics Materials – Training materials with the HR Representative or Program Administrator in mind.  The Performance Management Policy requires each division (including schools and colleges) to implement a performance management program. These materials are designed for individuals who have been designated as the person responsible or represent a team responsible for creating, implementing, or enhancing a performance management program for their unit. These materials will provide program set up and policy knowledge in order for schools/colleges/divisions who do not currently have a performance management policy or have an informal or unstructured process. The materials also provide a review of the performance management policy requirements to provide divisions assistance in identifying if their programs meet the necessary requirements identified in the policy.
