Performance Management

More... Share to Twitter Share to Facebook

ePerformance, is the PeopleSoft system for recording and capturing annual Performance Management Data.

Department Administrators were able to choose from three form-types offered within ePerformance for the FY15 performance year (*ask your Department Administrator which form your department will be utilizing):

  1. Standard Form – This is the most complete form.  It provides separate sections for identifying specific goals (both results-based and professional development) and competencies, as well as optional sections for collecting feedback at year-end.  It is the most iterative, in that there is system-facilitated interaction between the staff member and manager at the beginning of the performance cycle (Planning/Goal Setting) as well as the end of the cycle (Assessment).
  2. Summary Form – This form is completed by the manager at the end of the performance cycle (Assessment).  It provides space for a specific narrative summary for goals completed (both results-based and professional development) and competencies demonstrated.
  3. Exception Form – This form is completed by the manager at the end of the performance cycle (Assessment).  It provides a single space for a narrative summary for overall performance.
