Annual Performance Review Cycle

The performance review process is an opportunity for employees and managers to have an open and honest dialogue about the employee's performance for the past year and to set goals for the coming year. Working together, managers and employees can clarify expectations for one another to keep their department productive and effective. While discussions should be ongoing throughout the year, the annual review is an opportunity to document the achievements and development opportunities for each employee. Think of it as a tool to support the partnership between a manager and the team.
