May 31: Conducting Performance Appraisals

UCOP’s class in Conducting Performance Appraisals, Thursday, May 31, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in 5320 Franklin, is recommended for all managers and supervisors.

The class provides tools for maximizing the performance appraisal process. Participants will learn to clearly communicate with an employee about past performance, assess job satisfaction and make plans for future performance and development.

Learning objectives include:

  • Reviewing the performance management and appraisal process
  • Discussing the three phases of the appraisal process — preparing, writing and conducting the appraisal
  • Reviewing communication strategies to use during the process

The class is the third in a four-part series on performance management, which provides assistance to those who manage or supervise to maximize the potential of their team. The four-part series includes classes in setting performance expectations, coaching, and delegation.

Before taking this class, the class in Setting Performance Expectations is recommended but not required.

    A performance appraisal is only valuable when the managers are also appraised by the staff they supervise! In the corportae world this has become standard practice, why not at UC?

    I agree with Jean. Supervisors need performance appraisals from their staff. There should also be a way to promote their competency as supervisors, such as required training and a certificate or something similar.
