Dear UNT Community,
The annual Staff Performance Evaluation Review window is approaching. Supervisors are required to conduct and submit annual performance reviews for retirement-eligible staff members. The window to complete and submit these evaluations is from April 1 through May 31, and the UPO-31 Performance Form - Planning Guide should be utilized to administer this process.
These mandatory reviews are important and give managers an opportunity to make their teams better. Employees should receive a clear idea of their strengths, a plan for development and growth, and clearly defined goals and expectations.
The Human Resources staff has prepared a guide to help supervisors conduct successful reviews:
· The quick reference guide answers common questions about the annual review process and the form.
· Read a UPO-31 sample evaluation form
System Human Resources will hold 4 training sessions, “Navigating the Annual Evaluation Process,” (Course Code UO16NE) where managers can learn how to complete the forms and apply best practices.
There will also be an offering for the Supervisory Building Blocks program during this time, “Facilitating Effective Performance Evaluations” (Course Code AP16FE) which will focus on preparing and delivering effective performance feedback during the formal evaluation process (this session does not review the UPO-31 form).
Navigating the Annual Evaluation Process sessions are planned at the following times:
Register for a session at my.unt.edu. (Log into the portal; go to the Human Resources tab, then Training Enrollment in the lower left-hand corner under the Training & Development heading.) Questions? Email the campus HR team or call 940-565-2281.
