Baylor University reviews staff performance on an annual basis through the Staff Performance Evaluation and Planning process. The evaluation is designed to provide feedback on the prior year's performance and is the basis for the employee's merit pay increase. The performance document also includes a planning component to facilitate goal-setting and development strategies for the upcoming year.
The Staff Performance Evaluation and Planning process should take place
- Upon an employee’s completion of the initial 180 days of employment
- Annually during Baylor’s review process and is due to Human Resources in June.
NOTE: The Performance Evaluation & Planning Document has been updated to align the performance indicators with the definitions, provide clarification of process, and improve formatting. Please use the updated form from this point forward for 180-day and annual evaluations (some exceptions apply; check with your supervisor). The sample forms have been updated, as well, so they may serve as a reference in completing the document. Additional guidance will be provided through workshops and support materials made available this spring.
