Dartmouth is shifting the staff annual performance evaluation cycle from a fiscal year review period to a calendar year review period. Performance evaluations for calendar year 2016 should be completed in December 2016/January 2017.
In this transitional year, Division leaders will determine evaluation requirements for their area. We recommend that areas already engaged in the process of completing evaluations for the past calendar year continue to do so. Those who have not started their processes should ask managers to have a mid-year check-in meeting with employees no later than March 31, 2016 to discuss and review progress on goals set for completion in this fiscal year, and to establish goals for calendar year 2016.
Employees consistently report that knowing what is expected of them and receiving timely and constructive performance feedback are keys to having what they need to perform their jobs well.
Roles become more challenging every day, and just as roles constantly evolve, the expectations of employees continually change as well. Consequently, there is a vital need to clarify expectations and to encourage the development of skills that are critical both to the future success of Dartmouth and to the future development of employees.
Questions about the performance evaluation process can be directed to your Human Resources Consultant.
