Annual Performance Evaluations
While performance management is an ongoing process, all full-time Georgia Southern staff will be evaluated annually on their work performance. Performance evaluations should be used for supervisors and employees to further communicate about performance, as well as set goals, expectations and development opportunities for the coming year. The period evaluated each year is January 1 – December 31. All staff employees who completed their provisional period by December 31 should have an annual evaluation completed.
Starting with the evaluation period from January 1, 2021 – December 31, 2021, evaluations will be completed through ePerformance in OneUSG. Training on how to utilize OneUSG ePerformance will be offered beginning January 2022.
Preparing for the evaluation
To prepare for the evaluation process, managers should share a copy of the previous year’s evaluation with the employee. The manager will be required to enter the goals set on the previous year’s evaluation into the electronic performance evaluation. Additionally, the manager should log into OneUSG Manager Self Service to confirm that you can see the employees you will be evaluating (by clicking on the MyTeam Tile). If not, please submit a MyHelp ticket to Human Resources.
Staff will be evaluated on the following:
|Goal achievement from previous evaluation||Performance Factors|
|Job duties/responsbilities||Support of institutional values|
Position Description Review
As part of the annual performance evaluation process, employees and supervisors will review the current position description in order to provide updates to the job duties. Managers will access the job duties through OneUSG Connect and be able to share them with employees. The job aid for doing this can be found HERE.
The provisional period allows employees and managers to align performance expectations with actual performance. Prior to the conclusion of the 180 day provisional period, managers should complete the provisional evaluation for employees and submit it to Human Resources. The provisional period evaluation form can be found here.
