The University of Wisconsin System is committed to a performance management system that fosters and acknowledges excellent employee performance. Performance management should be conducted with fairness and transparency, and include opportunities to discuss and plan for employee career development.

Effective performance management aligns the efforts of supervisors and employees with departmental and university goals, promotes consistency in performance evaluation, and helps employees to perform at their best. The employee, the supervisor, and the UW institution are critical members of a partnership that ensures effective performance planning, assessment, and coaching.

Employee Performance Management is covered in UW System Administrative Policy 1254: Employee Performance Management. Additional resources are available to help you learn more about performance management - click through the tabs to find more.
