Performance Assessment & Goal Setting

About the Process

Performance planning and assessment is an ongoing process of communication between managers and their staff. The process involves a proactive planning component at the beginning of the performance year; ongoing feedback and coaching during the year; as well as an annual end of year meeting to:

  • Assess and discuss the staff member’s relative success in achieving the goals and objectives for the review period and ‘how’ these objectives were achieved using the defined competencies;
  • Recognize strong performance;
  • Identify areas requiring improvement and/or development and plans for meeting the training needs; and,
  • Identify key priorities for the following year, and set goals and objectives.
