2016 Performance Evaluation System (New System) 

The TWU Staff Performance Evaluation Project included a review of the current performance evaluation plan with the charge to offer a recommendation to Cabinet regarding a streamlined, efficient process that can be effectively and equitably linked to compensation. To facilitate this goal, two staff groups of 13 members each were appointed to serve on the Classified and the Professional & Administrative committees.

As a result of the committees’ work, it is now time to introduce the new staff performance evaluation system.  Training will occur in phases.  Phase 1 Training implementation sessions were conducted which included an overview of the committees’ work, an overview of the new forms developed by the committee, an introduction to the pay for performance concept and tools to complete employee goals.

Employees may now access and enter their Performance Development Goals. Click on the Performance Development Goals Forms link below for information on how to access the system.
