Performance Evaluations – Non-Instructional Academic Staff & Limited Employees

Annual performance evaluations are a key component to employee performance and development.  The objectives of annual performance evaluations are to provide all employees and their supervisors an opportunity to:

  • Discuss job performance
  • Set goals for professional development
  • Establish objectives for contributing to the department’s mission
  • Discuss expectations and accomplishments
  • Discuss career progression eligibility

Non-instructional academic staff and limited employees and their supervisors should begin the performance evaluation process for the prior fiscal year (July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019) as soon as possible. Please follow the procedure outlined on the Performance Evaluation Narrative Form, submitting the completed evaluation to the area leader’s office no later than Friday, August 30, 2019. Please note – An annual performance evaluation is not required for individuals hired after July 1, 2018 if a six-month evaluation has already been completed.

Part of the performance review process should be a discussion regarding changes in position responsibilities, appropriateness of the assigned title, and the eligibility towards career progression if employees are in a progression series title.

Per the UW-Green Bay Compensation and Pay Plan Policy, compensation adjustments must be based upon merit and employee performance.  Therefore, any future pay adjustments will be contingent upon satisfactory performance.

If you are interested in receiving training related to performance evaluations, career progression and title change, and/or academic staff contracts, or have any questions regarding these processes, please contact hr@uwgb.edu or (920) 465-2390.

Consider Modifying Your Fitness Moves for a New Start

So you’ve decided to get in better shape. That’s great news! Exercising regularly is associated with a slew of health benefits, including reducing your risk for heart disease and many cancers. It also helps you maintain a healthy weight and improves your overall mental health.

If it’s been a while since you were active, though, you may want to modify some exercise moves at first. For example, the pushup is a great exercise for working several body parts at once. But it’s challenging for many people because it requires a lot of upper body and core strength. Instead of trying regular pushups, start with a modified version today: Do the pushups on your hands and knees instead of your hands and toes. As you get stronger, you can move up to traditional pushups. Look for other ways to safely modify moves—it’s better to do a modified exercise than nothing at all.Physical-Exercises

Try 10 Lying Leg Raises Today

Your core is the foundation for all your body’s movement, and weak abdominal and lower back muscles can make you more prone to injury. In fact, about 8 in 10 of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives.17

To help build a stronger core, try this straight-leg raise today: Lie on your back with your arms at your sides, legs extended. Keeping your right leg straight, lift it toward the ceiling until it’s perpendicular to your torso, exhaling as you do so, then lower it back down, inhaling. Lift and lower the left leg next. That’s one rep; do 10 total. (To make the move more challenging, you can lift both legs at once—but avoid this if it bothers your lower back.)
