At USF, the practice of retaining high performing employees includes building strong working relationships between supervisors and employees. One of the aspects of creating these professional working relationships includes the performance management process. Performance management is more than the annual review. The process includes setting clear expectations and delivering consistent and timely feedback through coaching, encouragement and redirection. When performance management is completed as an ongoing dialogue between the supervisor and the employee, the results can be engaged, focused and productive employees and a thriving university.
The performance management process provides a vehicle through which employees and their supervisors collaborate to enhance work results and satisfaction. This process is most effective when both the employee and the supervisor take an active role and work together.
