The new performance management program for professional and scientific employees, which took effect July 1, 2009, sets up guidelines and procedures supervisors need to use. While participation in the training is voluntary, HRS strongly encourages faculty and staff who supervise P&S employees to attend.

Each training session includes:

  • A review of the new policy
  • A summary of document templates managers might use
  • Examples of constructive and non-constructive supervisor/employee conversations
  • A Q&A session
