performance management work plans
Performance Management:Work Plans

Work plans:

  • Are based on position descriptions
  • Require established methods of evaluation
  • Outline to an employee what they will be measured on for that performance year
  • Can be updated year after year
  • May result from a collaborative effort between an employee and their manager
  • Work plans should have GOALS!
performance management work plans1
Performance Management:Work Plans
  • Functional Competencies – “Building blocks” of career band title and level; standardized required components of the position.
  • Job Duties – Originate in Position Description. Task examples of what the employee must do vs. SMART goals stating how you expect specific tasks to be done during the performance cycle
  • Priority Order –Established by job description, ranking of functional competencies from most to least important to business need
  • SMART Goals- Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Results-Oriented, and Time-bound – adjectives that describe how to write performance goals for employee evaluation
  • Behavioral Competencies – valued attitudes and behaviors that support functional competencies and assist in identifying reasons for performance success and difficulties

State Personnel Manuel, Section 10

performance evaluation competency assessment
Performance Evaluation ≠ Competency Assessment
  • Red Flag- watch out for confusion
  • For Managers coming into the state university system from pay-for-performance companies, the role of the Performance Evaluationis difficult to distinguish from the role of the competency assessment.
  • The Competency Assessment is a tool for validating or adjusting pay based on demonstration or development of required functional competencies, as noted in the Compensation session this morning.
  • The following table clarifies distinct purposes of each process:
performance management developing goals in the work plan



(April / May)










Performance Management – Developing Goals in the Work Plan
work plan and s m a r t goals
Work Plan and S.M.A.R.T. Goals






When setting goals, the functional competencies act as the main guide and reference. Goals should be set that not only address what is expected, but also how it will be achieved. For example, the "what" covers quality or quantity expected, deadlines to be met, cost to deliver, etc. The "how" refers to the behavior demonstrated to achieve outcomes, for example, focus on customer service. Goals are written at the “good” level.

s m a r t goals in detail
S.M.A.R.T. Goals in Detail


  • Does the goal refer to a specific area of performance?
  • Is there only one, very clear picture of what success looks like when this goal is met?


  • Can the goal be objectively measured?
  • Can the goal be evaluated?
  • Can the goal be managed?


  • Is the goal important and will it have a positive impact on results?
  • Is the goal aligned with other university, departmental, team and individual goals?


  • Is there a 50 to 66% chance the goal can be achieved?
  • Can the goal be achieved given available resources?
  • Are the competencies required to achieve the goal available?


  • By when does the goal need to be achieved?
  • What are the incremental measurement points?
  • How does this goal impact other departments and other people?
sample behavioral smart goals in the work plan
Sample Behavioral SMART Goals in the Work Plan
  • The total number of functional and behavioral competencies listed in a work plan should not exceed 12.
ongoing activity observe note discuss
Ongoing Activity: Observe, Note, Discuss
  • After work plan is developed or revised, document work habits or behaviors you notice effectively contributing to goal achievement
  • Record and mention to employee any work habits or behaviors you notice not effectively contributing to goal achievement
  • For new employee, a more formal discussion at 3 months is recommended
  • Don’t wait until the Interim Review memo from HR to talk about performance goals!
preparation for end of cycle performance evaluation
Preparation for End of Cycle: Performance Evaluation
  • Prepare – gather your documentation of performance
  • Ask your employee to prepare: If desired, supervisors may encourage employees to provide self-evaluations to which they may then respond
    • Ask your employees to also contribute to ideas for their training in the next FY.
    • Ask your employees to think about their career growth
  • Consider methods of evaluation. What other feedback have you received over the year regarding this employee?
  • Schedule a formal appointment for the employee to discuss the performance results either before or after you submit your written comments, based on your preference.
  • Make every effort not to have to re-schedule. Most employees are nervous and this will help set them at ease.

Preparation for End of Cycle: Performance Evaluation.

  • Provide a “rating” for each expectation
  • Discuss any potential “mine fields” with your supervisor (the appraisal reviewer) before having employee discussion
  • After your comments and ratings on their goal achievements are entered into the evaluation, the employee will be asked to certify the following statement:
  • “…my manager met with me and reviewed this work plan with me. In addition, I have reviewed the work plan and have had the opportunity to ask questions and make comments during this meeting.”
  • When employee returns to you, you submit to Evaluation Reviewer (your manager).
  • No evaluation results should be a surprise!!!
final notes and reminders
Final Notes and Reminders
  • If employee comes off probation in December, January or February, annual performance evaluation not due until end of following cycle (ex: hired in July 2011, 1st evaluation June 2013)
    • In these cases, you must be diligent in providing feedback without the mandatory requirements!
  • If employee changes jobs through on-campus recruitment during cycle, both supervisors are responsible for contributing to annual appraisal (make notes on performance when a person leaves your unit to provide next supervisor)
  • If employee’s job changes through supervisor request (title, level, or competency change), supervisor is responsible for revising work plan within 30 days of change
  • The term “annual appraisal” is synonymous with “annual performance evaluation.” The new system uses the term “evaluation” so moving forward, try to use that terminology
