2019-2020 performance appraisals will resume

In April, we announced in Link that 2019-2020 performance appraisals (for the period from April 1, 2019, to March 31, 2020) were delayed, due to the significant challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many employees have continued to work on self-appraisals and managers have continued to write appraisals over the spring and summer. To date, more than 75% of self-appraisals are complete and 75% of employee appraisals are in progress. Effective July 15, 2020, we will resume the FY19/20 Performance Evaluation process according to the following revised timeline:

Completing your self-evaluation and appraisal

Your annual performance appraisal provides an opportunity for you to reflect on your accomplishments over the past year, receive feedback, define areas of 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 managing our job satisfaction and career development. The ultimate goal of performance appraisals is that at the end of the process, you will know where you stand and will receive guidance toward future success.

When completing your appraisal, please keep in mind that this appraisal covers April 1, 2019, to March 31, 2020. Any work that has been completed since April 1, 2020, will not be considered during this review period. Employee self-appraisals must be completed in Halogen by July 24, 2020. Note: If you would like to revise a previously submitted 2019-2020 appraisal, please contact for assistance.
