University Staff Performance Evaluations for Calendar Year 2021

We are a few weeks into the new year, and ready to begin the University Staff performance evaluation process for the evaluation period of January 1, 2021 – December 31, 2021.

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.

Please review the presentation on Managing and Evaluating Employee Performance to familiarize yourself with this process and your responsibilities. If you would prefer an in-person training session on this topic, please contact


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 addition, supervisors must have up-to-date, documented performance evaluations on file for all direct reports in order to receive pay adjustments.

Related updates:

      • As part of the Performance Evaluation process, it is important that we continue to recognize the opportunities, challenges and changes in the way employees did work due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Supervisors are asked to keep this in mind when assessing goal completion and setting goals for 2022.
      • In accordance with the Title & Total Compensation Project, the template for position descriptions has changed. We ask that the performance evaluation process for ALL university staff employees include the development of an updated position description this year, which should be signed and submitted along with the evaluation by the due date below. Please see here for instructions on creating the new position description utilizing the UW-Green Bay Position Description Library.
      • We will be transitioning to electronic performance evaluations for all non-instructional employees in January, 2023. The new position descriptions developed this year will be the foundation for the electronic evaluation structure moving forward. Please watch for communications about this new system during the 2022 calendar year.

In an effort to facilitate timely completion, performance evaluations and position descriptions are due by Friday, March 25, 2022.

Please note that annual performance evaluations are not required for individuals who have had a probationary review on or after July 1, 2021, or for new employees that have been hired since this date. Contact Human Resources if you have any questions about the University Staff performance evaluation process.
