Self-appraisal process begins for staff employees

The Self-Appraisal and Performance Evaluation for the 2021/2022 evaluation period is underway for staff employees and those managing staff. Self-appraisals are due by Friday, June 24.

The review period covers June 1, 2021-May 31, 2022. All regular part- and full-time staff employees hired before May 1, 2022, are required to participate in the process.

Self-appraisals are an opportunity for staff employees to document their projects and accomplishments over the review period. The information will give supervisors a more accurate picture when they develop their reviews.

Having trouble remembering what you’ve accomplished this year? Check out Bridge. Any courses you have completed in either Bridge or LinkedIn Learning will appear in your Bridge account, allowing you to easily list your professional development on your self-appraisal.

The Office of Human Resources has provided online training to help employees and supervisors with the process. Using Chrome or Firefox browsers is recommended.

The system is designed for staff employees and those managing staff employees only. It is not intended to be used to evaluate faculty, adjunct faculty, graduate assistants, student employees, or temporary employees.
