Performance Evaluations 2015

It’s that time of the year when Performance Evaluations should be given to each employee. Although it is the responsibility of managers to give continuous feedback to employees throughout the year, Georgia State University (GSU) recognizes an annual formal process. This is every managers opportunity to give feedback on the areas where the employee is doing well and the areas that may be deficient. Below is a link to the page for the University Performance Evaluation form in the MS Word version:

Set time aside to give feedback
Each manager should set time aside to give employees open, honest, and fair feedback regarding that employee’s consistent performance for the time period of January 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014. In giving feedback, managers should also provide recommendations for ways an employee may improve and/or further develop his/her skills. GSU offers many training and development opportunities, which can be located on the Spring 2015 Training and Development Calendar or on the Human Resources website at: Attached is an employee learning plan outline to assist managers and employees with the performance evaluation process.

Performance Evaluation Deadline
Performance Evaluations are due by the close of business on Tuesday, March 31, 2015; however, individual colleges or units may have earlier deadlines.
