About Performance Appraisal Training

It is expected that Merit and P&S employees receive a formal review of their performance annually. There is annual training offered, along with several documents to assist employees and supervisors in this process. The actual review is a dedicated opportunity to comment on an employee's performance; however, it should be a continual process. The training offered will help supervisors see the benefits of offering feedback and conducting performance appraisals. They will also develop ways to reduce the negativity often associated with the appraisal process. Expanding the understanding of the goal setting process, documenting performance using a critical incident form, and also focus on preparing, conducting and following-up to a performance appraisal are all covered topics.
