Non-Instructional Academic Staff & Limited Employee Performance Evaluation Calendar Transition Reminder

The start of a new fiscal year historically would kick off the annual performance evaluation process for Non-Instructional Academic Staff & Limited employees. However, in an effort to create a more consistent review period across employee classifications and support future technology enhancements in the performance evaluation process for non-instructional staff, Cabinet approved a change in calendar for Non-Instructional Academic Staff and Limited employee evaluations. Non-Instructional Academic Staff and Limited evaluations will now be based upon a calendar year review period and will be conducted annually in January/February.

To facilitate this transition in calendar, Non-Instructional Academic Staff & Limited employees are not expected to complete annual performance evaluations with the start of this fiscal year.  However, supervisors are strongly encouraged to schedule a touch-point during the month of July/August with all of their Non-instructional Academic Staff & Limited Employees to provide an opportunity to informally:

      • Discuss job performance
      • Review established prior years goals and determine need to create additional goals to work towards over the additional six-month evaluation period
      • Discuss opportunities for professional development

This change in evaluation schedule will not impact six-month evaluations for new Non-Instructional Academic Staff and Limited employees. Timely individual notifications will continue to be provided to supervisors for employees required to have a six-month evaluation.

Per the UW-Green Bay  Compensation and Pay Plan Policy, compensation adjustments must be based upon merit and employee performance. Any compensation adjustment to include the upcoming January 2023 pay plan distribution will be assessed utilizing last years annual evaluation (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021), or a six-month evaluation for any employee hired after July 1, 2020.

Over the next few months, the Office of Human Resources in collaboration with shared governance committees will be reviewing the current non-instructional performance evaluation process to identify updates that will streamline processes and better align with the positions descriptions developed this year as part of the Title & Total Compensation Project.

Additional information will be shared as it is available. For questions about the performance evaluation process, please contact
