Annual Performance Evaluations

The Performance Evaluation process at UIS is designed to encourage communication between employees and their supervisors. The program focuses on year-round coaching by supervisors, culminating in a formal annual evaluation. Evaluations are required for all current employees, including those hired during the evaluation period. The evaluation period is April 1 through March 31. Completed and signed Employee Performance Evaluation forms are due in the Office of Human Resources on or before June 5, 2015. Employee self evaluation forms are highly encouraged and recommended. Self-evaluation forms should be submitted to the immediate supervisor for interdepartmental use only. Performance reviews for Faculty, Academic Professional, and Open Range Civil Service staff are a factor in determining employee compensation under University policies related to merit-based salary programs.
