Mid-review discussions for university support staff employees
The performance management process requires that all permanent university support staff employees have a mid-review discussion between April 1 and June 30 of each year.
This face-to-face discussion documents the employee's progress against the task objectives and competencies/behaviors defined in the performance planning process. The supervisor must be as specific as possible about the employee's actual performance to date, documenting specific observable results wherever possible, and add qualitative information or feedback whenever helpful. Any valid updates to employee's objectives, which are based on changes in the unit or department needs, may also be documented in this section. This discussion may be documented on the optional mid-review discussion PDF form or other method. This documentation should be attached to the performance review form and submitted to Human Capital Services at the end of the annual review period.
Employees who are in their probationary period should have their mid-review discussion at the mid-point, typically at the three-month mark.
