The new campus-wide Performance Management Policy is an important element in developing, maintaining and retaining a high-performing workforce that meets the needs of a 21st– century university and its employees.
The Office of Human Resources (OHR) has gathered input through conversations and listening sessions with governance groups, departments, colleges and other stakeholders and designed a new performance management program to serve a highly diverse and complex higher education organization like UW-Madison.
The new program offers:
- Flexibility. Schools and departments are free to design and implement a customized performance management program that satisfies all policy requirements and meets their individual needs.
- Support. Central human resources, working with divisions, provides training, resources, tools, and consultative services.
- Consistency. The performance management policy supports best practices for employee evaluation across campus.
This policy affects:
- Full-time permanent Classified/University and Academic Staff • Part-time permanent Classified/University and Academic Staff • Faculty who supervise Classified/University and Academic Staff employees • Classified/University project employees with positions lasting one year or more • Limited Appointees •
