Complete your 2017-2018 annual self-evaluation by April 13
The Halogen e-appraisal tool is now open for the 2017-2018 Annual Performance Evaluation Process. Please be sure to complete your self-evaluations in Halogen no later than April 13.
This Performance Evaluation process covers performance between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018, and includes all policy covered employees and SMG 2s.
The annual performance evaluation process provides the opportunity to reflect and receive feedback on accomplishments and areas needing improvement, and set goals for the coming year. This process is an essential part of the work experience and gives all of us a role in our job satisfaction and career development.
Ideally, employees and their managers/supervisors discuss performance and career development throughout the year, and the evaluation process simply captures employees’ progress. The ultimate goal is that, at the end of the process, each employee will know where she or he stands and will receive guidance toward future success.
As a reminder, below are the key steps and dates for this year’s cycle. UCOP Human Resources will create guides and e-courses for each step of the process. Guides and e-courses will be posted on the Performance Management page.
