The Kansas Performance Management Process requires that all classified employees receive an annual review between October 1st and December 23rd of each year. It is now time for supervisors to prepare the annual review form, assign an overall rating and schedule a meeting with the employee(s) being reviewed. All classified employees, except for those currently on probation, must have an annual review submitted to Human Resources no later than December 23, 2011.
If you have questions about the process or need assistance, please contact Gina Lowe at firstname.lastname@example.org or 532-1878.
Personnel Specialists can run the Performance Review Due report to determine which employees still need to have their reviews submitted. Instructions for this report can be found at http://www.k-state.edu/hr/hris/Performance_reviews_due_rpt.pdf (pdf)
