  1. Performance Evaluation HR Training Sessions May 7 - 17, 2013

  2. Course Objectives • Obtain the information you need to train the managers and employees at your agency on how to use the performance evaluation process in People First • This training will only cover how to use the People First system and will notcover concepts for SMART performance expectations

  3. Performance Evaluations Completed in People First • Annual performance evaluations for permanent and exempt employees starting July 1, 2013 • This includes close-out evaluations (details covered later) for periods where the expectations setting process was completed in People First • Probationary evaluations for employees whose probationary period begins on or after July 1, 2013

  4. Performance Evaluations Completed Outside People First • Probationary evaluations for employees whose probationary period begins prior to July 1, 2013 • Annual evaluations for periods ending on or before June 30, 2013 • Interim evaluations (quarterly, mid-point) • Special recognition evaluations • Trainee evaluations • OPS evaluations • Corrective action plans (aka, performance improvement plans)

  5. Annual Performance Evaluation Periods • Initial annual evaluation periods • July 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013 • Close-out in December to set SMART expectations effective January 1, 2014 • January 1, 2014 – June 30, 2014 • Future annual evaluation periods (after initial periods) will be July 1 – June 30 each year

  6. Eligibility Criteria for Annual Evaluation Plan • Employees in an exempt or permanent status on July 1, 2013 • Employees who obtain an exempt or permanent status on or after July 1, 2013 • Eligibility determination is based on the completion of the Personnel Action Request (PAR), placing the employee in the exempt or permanent status • Employees obtaining an exempt or permanent status will not show in the annual evaluation process (expectations setting process) until the day after the PAR is completed

  7. Eligibility Criteria for Annual Evaluation Plan • Employees changing agencies will not show in the annual performance evaluation process until the third day after the effective date of the hire • To show eligible in the performance evaluation process, both the separation PAR and the appointment PAR must be completed • If the final PAR action is acted upon more than 3 days after the start date at the new agency, the employee will show as eligible in the annual performance evaluation process for the new agency the day after the PAR is completed

  8. Accessing Performance & Talent Management System • Log into People First (same login and password as today, no change), and select the Performance & Talent Management tab • This will take the employee to the Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard

  9. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard

  10. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • About Me – Contains information for the employee that is logged in; includes quick links to the employee’s Performance Expectations and Evaluations • Employees can also access historical performance expectations and evaluations that were completed in People First July 1, 2013 forward

  11. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • Reporting Structure • Managers – Presents the manager’s direct reports; managers can select the employee to view their related information (expectations, evaluations, etc.) • Employees – Shows where the employee is in the reporting structure (who they report to) • Both employees and managers will have access to navigate up the reporting structure

  12. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • Performance Evaluations • This section is not presented to employees • Provides managers the ability to see where their employees are in the performance expectations setting and evaluation processes

  13. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • Performance Evaluations Continued • Managers can choose to view the process details by either their Direct Reports (My Direct Reports Only) or by their full reporting structure (All My Employees) • My Direct Reports Only will include only the employees that report directly to the manager • All My Employees will include both the employees that report directly to the manager, and the employees that report to manager’s direct reports

  14. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • Performance Evaluations Continued • Managers can select the dropdown to change the process that is presented (e.g., change from the Expectations Setting to the Final Evaluation process)

  15. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • Performance Evaluations Continued • Managers can also navigate into each step of the evaluation by selecting the number in the navigation flow for that step • Clicking on the number for a specific step will launch a list of employees in that step of the process • To view information for a specific employee select the eyeglass icon ( ) next to the employee’s name

  16. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • My Tasks • Located on the Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard (not on the People First Home page) • Performance evaluation tasks and tasks for approving job requisitions will be included • Separate tasks are created for each performance evaluation plan • If managers have employees in more than one evaluation plan (e.g., annual evaluation plan and a probationary evaluation plan), separate tasks will be presented for the employee in each plan

  17. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • My Tasks • Group Task – Presented for manager and second-level manager tasks when a specific task is available for completion for more than one employee • Individual Task • Employees will see performance tasks to acknowledge receipt of their expectations and evaluation • Presented for manager and second-level manager tasks when the task is only available for one employee

  18. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • My Tasks • Managers will have tasks to set expectations, monitor (track) performance, evaluate and discuss the performance evaluation for their direct reports • Employees will have tasks to acknowledge receipt of their expectations and evaluation • Second-level managers will have a task to review evaluations prior to the manager providing the evaluation to the employee

  19. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • My Tasks Delegation • All manager and second-level manager tasks can be delegated by selecting the delegation icon ( ) next to the task name • Tasks should ONLY be delegated when appropriate • When delegating a task select the Add button to search for the employee that will receive the delegation • Note that the search is statewide and is not restricted to the employees in your agency

  20. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • My Tasks Delegation Continued • When adding a delegation you can choose to time limit access by entering a beginning and ending date • If no date is entered, the delegation will remain active for the entire evaluation period • Delegation is restricted to the specific task, employee and performance evaluation plan

  21. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • My Tasks Delegation Continued • If a delegation is needed for more than one task, employee, performance evaluation plan or a combination of these, the delegation must be elected for each unique occurrence • If the manager delegates the “Performance Evaluation” task, it automatically gives the person receiving the delegation access to send the employee the evaluation after the second-level review is completed. Therefore, the manager does not need to also delegate the “Conduct Performance Evaluation Session” task.

  22. Performance & Talent Management My Dashboard • My Tasks Delegation Continued • Both the step owner (e.g., manager) and the person receiving the delegation (e.g., former manager) will receive the task, related emails and reminders • Delegations can be removed by selecting the delegation icon and then selecting the delete button in the section Employees with Delegation Authority • If delegations are used, the delegation MUST be removed manually if the employee with delegation rights leaves the agency • Access will remain with the employee if not removed

  23. Performance Evaluations - Overlapped Positions • Employee – If the employee position is overlapped • No impact to the evaluation process (employee, manager and second-level manager still receive the tasks, emails, etc.). • Manager – If the manager position is overlapped • The manager assigned to complete the evaluation process will be assigned alphabetically by the manager’s first name (only assigned to one manager). If the other manager is responsible for completing the evaluation activities, each task must be delegated to the other manager.

  24. Performance Evaluations - Overlapped Positions • Manager Continued • Employee and second-level manager access is not impacted (both continue to receive emails and tasks they are responsible for).

  25. Performance Evaluations - Overlapped Positions • Second-Level Manager – If the second-level manager position is overlapped • The second-level manager assigned to complete the evaluation process will be assigned alphabetically by the second-level manager’s first name (only assigned to one manager). If this second-level manager is not the correct person to complete the evaluation review, the task must be delegated to the appropriate manager (generally the other second-level manager). • Employee and Manager access is not impacted (both continue to receive emails and tasks they are responsible for).
