Is employee input pre-populated into the Performance Review System?

Yes. Starting in FY20, you no longer need to copy staff self-reports and proposed goals into your portion of the review.

  • You can - and should - edit these pre-populated text blocks so that the final review comes from you, in your own words, and in your voice.

  • When needed, you can send the review back to the employee for revisions. See Un-finalizing Staff Input.

  • Be sure the comments included in the final review are appropriate for a personnel file. If you have any questions or concerns, reach out to the department or College HR staff.
