University Policy Statement # 54

Managing the Performance of Employees Subject to the State Personnel Act

“The performance management process is the sequence of actions supervisors take when interacting with employees about their job performance and includes: determining the key elements of the job, developing performance expectations, providing an interim review of job performance, and providing an annual performance appraisal. Interaction between supervisor and employee is required at each step of the process.”

  • Goal Setting

Based on position descriptions

  • “What” you need done

Translate tasks into performance goals

  • “How” you need it done

Measure performance based on goals

  • Effective measurement is a result of “smart” goals

Are reviewed for revisions each year

Represent collaboration between manager and employee

  • Goal Setting

Develop when

  • Position is New
  • Position is Modified

Review and revise when

  • Job Duties Change
  • Position is Vacated
  • After Evaluation for the next Performance Cycle (Feb – Mar)

When developed, reviewed or revised

  • Discuss with employee

work plan components
WORK PLAN COMPONENTS

Functional Competencies

  • “Building blocks” of career band title and level; standardized required components imported from the position

Priority Order

  • Established by job description, ranking of functional competencies from most to least important business need

Job Duties

  • Originate in Position Description. Task details of what the employee must do

Behavioral Competencies

  • Originate in Work Plan. Attitudes and behaviors that help identify reasons for performance success or difficulty
work plan components1
WORK PLAN COMPONENTS

Decide at beginning how you will gather information to provide specific feedback.

  • If selected, employees will submit comments on their assessment of their own performance to you prior to your rating and evaluation in HRMS.
  • The method may be expected in some departments, but is not required.

Share your MOE’s with Employee.

Functional competencies are the framework for areas to be measured.

  • Specific provides a target: quality or quantity expected, deadlines to be met
  • Measurable: can you easily determine whether the employee met, exceeded or didn’t reach?
  • Align your goals by keeping your current primary needs in mind
  • Realistic goals are written at the “good” level. Ask for your employee’s input.
  • How often do you need reports? How quickly do you want a response? How far aheadshould an event be planned?

reviewing smart goals
REVIEWING SMART GOALS
  • Goal Setting

Specific

  • 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?

Measurable

  • Can the goal be objectively measured?
  • Can the goal be evaluated?
  • Can the goal be managed?
slide19

REVIEWING SMART GOALS

  • Goal Setting

Aligned with Mission

  • 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?

Realistic

  • 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 required by the career band level?
slide21

REVIEWING SMART GOALS

  • Goal Setting

Time-bound

  • When does the goal need to be achieved?
  • What are the incremental measurement points?
  • How does this goal impact other departments and other people?
behavioral goals
BEHAVIORAL GOALS
  • Goal Setting
  • Supplement measurement of functional competencies
  • Identify why skillful employees may not be performing as expected
  • Define manager’s priorities for work unit success
  • Are selected from an dictionary of critical behaviors
  • Dictionary of Behavioral Competencies for Career Banding is linked into HRMS
  • Selected behaviors tie back into Targeted Selection
  • Limit number of evaluated behaviors to 5 or 6
sample behavioral competency goals in work plan
SAMPLE BEHAVIORAL COMPETENCY GOALS IN WORK PLAN

Total number of functional and behavioral competencies should not exceed 12.

ongoing activity observe note and discuss
ONGOING ACTIVITY – OBSERVE, NOTE AND DISCUSS

Ongoing Feedback & Coaching

  • Throughout cycle, document work habits or behaviors that effectively contribute to goal achievement
  • Record and mention to employee any work habits or behaviors that do not effectively contribute to goal achievement
  • For new employee or new supervisor, a more formal discussion at 3 months is recommended
  • Don’t wait until Interim Review memo from HR to talk about noted performance accomplishments/deficiencies
work plan availability
WORK PLAN AVAILABILITY

Ongoing Feedback & Coaching

  • Log in to jobs.uncc.edu/hr as Hiring Manager
  • Search for Position by Employee Name
  • Click on “Get Reports List”
  • Select Work Plan to View
  • Use Journaling Feature (new in 2012) to make notes
  • HRMS = Instant reference availability for both employee and manager
types of reviews probationary
TYPES OF REVIEWS: PROBATIONARY

Employees new to state universities and state government serve a probationary period of 3- 9 months.

  • “Essential extension” of selection process for:
    • Assisting employee in meeting expectations in work plan
    • Ending employment in cases of unsatisfactory performance
    • Terminating employee when competencies do not match business needs
    • Documenting whether employee “meets” the SMART goal expectations and becomes permanent; OR
    • Documenting a “conditional” status to extend probation
probationary considerations
PROBATIONARY CONSIDERATIONS
  • With a good work plan, placing a new employee on “conditional” status is a straight-forward process
  • With “conditional” status, manager develops improvement plan by coordinating with Employee Relations
  • With a good work plan, termination of a new employee who cannot meet expectations while on probation is a simple documentation process
  • Termination without a work plan is not possible
  • If the probationary review is not completed, employee automatically becomes permanent after nine months
  • AVC for HR must grant special approval for any change to permanent status in less than 6 months
types of reviews annual interim review
TYPES OF REVIEWS: ANNUAL INTERIM REVIEW
  • A formal “reminder” to communicate

with your employee about performance

  • For all permanent SPA employees
  • Measured by work plan
  • Structured meeting for communication/feedback
  • Occurs in September – Schedule ahead
  • Interim Review September
interim review considerations
INTERIM REVIEW CONSIDERATIONS
  • Conducted by “honor system”

(HR does not usually collect) Process will be set up in HRMS

  • Begins preparation for second half of performance cycle
  • Most important to communicate any weak areas

The annual end-of-cycle ratings should never be a surprise

  • Interim Review September
improvement plan
IMPROVEMENT PLAN

Ongoing Feedback & Coaching

Corrective action plan

Short-term action plan initiated when employee’s performance fails to meet expectations

Purpose: to achieve performance improvement

  • Assist employee not meeting expectations (2-“below good”)
  • Response to probationary, interim, or annual review
  • May be created any time during the performance cycle
  • Measures employee improvement in weak area(s)
  • Supervisor and employee agree to the conditions
prepare for performance discussion
PREPARE FOR PERFORMANCE DISCUSSION
  • Prepare – gather documentation of

performance

    • Consider any feedback you have received over the year about this employee
  • Ask employee to prepare:
    • If desired, supervisors may encourage employees to provide self-evaluations to which they may then respond
    • Ask employees to contribute to ideas for their training in the next FY
    • Ask employees to think about their career growth and share their career goals
  • Year-End Review March
prepare for performance discussion1
PREPARE FOR PERFORMANCE DISCUSSION
    • Discuss potential “mine fields” with your manager before having employee discussion
  • Schedule a formal appointment for the employee to discuss the performance results
    • Either before or after you submit your written comments
  • Try not to have to re-schedule, for employee’s benefit
  • Provide a “rating” for each expectation.
    • Allow time for response
    • Make sure they understand system process
  • Year-End Review March
rating an employee
RATING AN EMPLOYEE
  • You must rate each functional competency area required and prioritized in the position description and each behavioral competency.
  • Avoid over-rating based on perceptions that “everyone always gets 5’s.” With good work plans, 5’s should be rare.
  • Inflated ratings are of no benefit to your employee.
  • A “4” or “5” rating does require specific examples of how the goals were exceeded.
  • A “1” or “2” rating requires specific examples of how the goals are not being met.
  • Year-End Review March
annual career development plan
ANNUAL CAREER DEVELOPMENT PLAN
  • Required Component of the annual Performance Evaluation

What is it? An action plan for “enhancing an employee’s level of performance in order to excel in the current job or prepare for new responsibilities.”

  • Year-End Review March
slide40

COMPLETING THE PERFORMANCE EVALUATION

Before final submission to the Reviewer, check for:

  • Ratings and comments as required on all prioritized competencies
  • Any employee comments not addressed in your meeting
  • Employee’s initials on 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.”

  • Year-End Review March

The Evaluation Reviewer marks the “Evaluation Complete” which authorizes submission of the employee’s rating.

final notes and resources
FINAL NOTES AND RESOURCES
  • 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
final notes and resources1
FINAL NOTES AND RESOURCES
  • 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;” moving forward, use that term)
performance evaluation competency assessment
PERFORMANCE EVALUATION≠COMPETENCY ASSESSMENT

How these processes are different:

  • For Managers coming into the state university system from pay-for-performance companies, the role of the Performance Evaluation is 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. However, it has rarely been used for pay increases since 2009.
  • The following table clarifies distinct purposes of each process.

unc ga recommends
UNC-GA RECOMMENDS:
  • Career banding as a position and salary management system is unique to the NC University system, merging components of several position management structures
  • It is not intuitive
  • For an excellent overview, take the time to watch UNC – General Administration’s presentation for new managers at this link: (find on HR/Comp & Pos Mgmt landing page shown on slide # 35): http://www.northcarolina.edu/hr/unc/classcomp/Career-banding.pdf
