Aim for 10,000 Steps!

You know that physical activity is good for you, and that walking is an easy, low-impact way to get moving. But how far do you need to walk before you start seeing benefits? And what exactly are the benefits of walking?

The National Institutes of Health recommend you take about 10,000 steps a day, which shakes out to roughly 5 miles. That may sound like a lot, but remember, you don’t have to do it all at once.


If 10,000 steps a day seems daunting, it’s OK to ease into it. First, use a step tracker for a few days without trying to change anything. This gives you a baseline for your fitness. If you currently take 5,000 or fewer steps a day, aim to increase by about 3,000 at most. Start working toward 10,000 steps today!

Reminder: Performance Evaluations- Non-Instructional Academic Staff & Limited Employees

Completed evaluations were to be submitted to the area leader’s office by Friday, August 30, 2019.

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. 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 or (920) 465-2390.

Integration of UPS Policies into UW System Administrative Policy Series

The University Personnel Systems (UPS) policies have been successfully integrated into the UW System Administrative (SYS) policy framework .What was previously UPS policies has become the 1200 series in the SYS policy set. The goal of the reorganization was to make all system wide policies more accessible by housing them in one place. This process resulted in no substantive changes to the policies, and the UPS/1200 policies will continue to apply to all UW Institutions. The 1200 series is now live. Between July 2019 and July 2020, the links to the UPS policies will redirect to the new 1200 series. The Office of Human Resources and Workforce Diversity will continue working to ensure all UPS policy references are updated prior to the July 2020 expiration date.

Please contact Human Resources at or ext. 2390 if you have any questions.
