    • Performance Evaluations

      The Office of Human Resources has implemented a new online employee performance evaluation system for Professional Administrative and Classified Staff. It is essential for you to learn about this new method of completing evaluations as it will replace the paper evaluation process for employees.   

      The Online Performance Evaluation workshop will introduce significant changes to the performance evaluation process. The evaluation documents will remain the same; however, the method of delivery and completion will now be online. You will utilize this system throughout this calendar year and beyond.
