REMINDER: University Staff Performance Evaluations

The new year is upon us, and with it begins the University Staff performance evaluation process for the evaluation period of January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017. Your supervisor should initiate this process with you within the next couple weeks.

Annual performance evaluations are a key component to employee performance and development and provide employees and their supervisors an opportunity to discuss job performance, set goals for professional development, establish objectives for contributing to the department’s mission, and discuss expectations and accomplishments.


In line with UW System compensation guidelines and the UW-Green Bay Compensation and Pay Plan Policy, all compensation adjustments must be based upon merit and employee performance.  Therefore, any future pay adjustments, including base rate adjustments and Board of Regents approved pay plan, will be contingent upon satisfactory performance.

In an effort to facilitate timely completion, evaluations are due by Friday, March 23, 2018.

Please note that annual performance evaluations are not required for individuals who have had a probationary review on or after July 1, 2017, or for new employees that have been hired since this date.

Please contact Human Resources if you have any questions about the University Staff performance evaluation process. Thank you.
