Annual Performance Appraisal Program

The University of Pennsylvania is committed to staff development and believes that the performance appraisal and planning process is an integral part of that development. This process is designed to improve job understanding, promote more effective job performance, and establish future goals for career growth.

The goal of the annual performance appraisal process is to provide staff members with feedback on their performance and accomplishments for the previous year. This program should also assist staff members in understanding their job responsibilities and supervisors' performance expectations. Performance goals for the upcoming year and specific plans to help staff members meet those goals should also be established through this process. The third component of the appraisal process is to give the staff member feedback on professional development goals (including competencies established, if applicable) and set professional development goals for the upcoming year.
