Principles of the Pilot Project
The following are the principles of the Performance Development Process Pilot Project.
1) The performance planning process will help align a participant’s performance with their unit’s or senior executive’s objectives.
- Objectives will be measurable
- Behavioural competencies will be used to help define performance expectations
- A participant’s development plan will support achievement of work objectives and, if applicable, career objectives
- A participant’s performance plan may be updated based on significant changes in unit or university priorities
2) Participant success will be supported by developmental coaching and timely feedback.
- Timely feedback and coaching will allow participants to make adjustments during a performance cycle
- A participant’s administrator will work collaboratively with them to identify any development they need to meet performance expectations and achieve performance plans
3) Participant performance will be regularly reviewed.
- Participants’ administrators will receive training on how to assess and provide performance feedback
- Participants will receive feedback on work completed and behavioural competencies
- Performance discussions will be a two-way conversation between a participant and their administrator
- Participants may be able to receive performance feedback from a variety of sources. This feedback will be for the participant to use in informing their development
