Final eAppraisal demos offered this week
Employee self-appraisals are the first of several steps in this year’s performance appraisal process to be completed using eAppraisal, UCOP’s new tool for handling performance evaluations electronically. The self-appraisal sets in motion the process to get all employee performance appraisals into the system by Tuesday, Sept. 30. Reviews should cover performance during the fiscal year, from July 1, 2013, through June 30, 2014.
If you haven’t attended one of several demonstrations on the new system or tried it yet, go ahead and log in. It’s quite straightforward; you just fill in the online form, which you’ll recognize if you’ve done a printed evaluation at UCOP in the past. Be sure to include your future goals at the end of the form, including both job-related goals and professional development goals.
