    1. A culture of Pay for Performance

    Staff Performance Reviews

    The Staff Performance Review process should:

    • Establish a format for the dialogue between supervisor and staff member to discuss performance in relation to core competencies and goal accomplishments.

    • Provide a mechanism to assist in improving where necessary staff job performance and work contributions.

    • Provide the University with performance-based information to support a decision for merit pay, promotion, transfer, demotion or discharge.

    • Serve as a framework for determining a staff member's future development needs and preparing the staff member for increased and/or changed job responsibilities through professional development, training and coaching.
