Staff Performance Feedback Process
Evaluation of employees’ work is a key component of performance management. While informal evaluation and conversations occur throughout the year through planning and developing employees’ work, all staff members participate in the annual Staff Performance Feedback Process. The Performance Feedback Process takes place in BaylorCompass, Baylor’s Career Management Resource System.


Steps in Process

  1. Employee completes Performance Feedback Form
  2. Manager completes Performance Feedback Form
  3. Second-Level Manager reviews Form
  4. Manager & Employee discuss feedback & Manager signs off
  5. Employee Signs Off on receipt of Form


The annual process takes place in the spring with a review of the past year - June of last year to spring of this year - and plans for the upcoming year.

Due dates for steps in the process are in place and outlined below. Steps may be completed ahead of the due date.

Departments may have internal timelines, so check with your department head.




Employees who began work prior to March 1, 2018, will participate in the performance process and be eligible for merit recommendations.  Employees hired March 1-May 31 will be eligible for merit, as well, but will not participate in the performance process.
