Performance Management Program

The performance management program is intended to help employees be successful in their jobs at Utah Valley University and participate in continuous feedback and support. Performance management also helps achieve individual, department and institution-wide results by:

  • opening lines of communication;
  • promoting a work environment in which goals are set and achieved through working together;
  • coaching performance at different levels; and
  • providing the tools to plan, maintain, and continuously improve future performance.

The performance management program applies to full-time, non-faculty staff.

Evaluation Cycle

  • During the year - Effective and balanced coaching and feedback (performance feedback at least quarterly).
  • January to March - Leaders meet with staff employees to conduct the annual evaluation and create an optional performance plan (at the supervisor's discretion).
  • April - Final reports submitted by HR to executive leadership.

Evaluation Tools

  • The electronic performance management system found at https://userve.uvu.edu/upm 
  • Supervisor: Preparing for a Performance Evaluation Discussion - A guide to help leaders prepare for a performance evaluation discussion with their employees.
  • Employee: Preparing for a Performance Evaluation Discussion - A guide to help employees prepare for a performance evaluation discussion with their leader.

Evaluation Process

  • Employees complete an Annual Core Competencies Evaluation, rating themselves for the 2015 year.
  • Supervisors complete their evaluation of the employee’s Core Competencies for the 2015 year.
  • 2nd Level Supervisors review the evaluation completed by the supervisor and discuss it with them.
  • Supervisors and employees then meet to discuss the evaluation and review the employee’s progress.
  • Supervisors either return the evaluation to the employee for their reply/comments, or finish the evaluation process by clicking on “Save as Complete” in the electronic performance management system (UVUPM).
  • If the employee entered a reply/comments, they finish the evaluation process by clicking the “Save as Complete” button.

Code of Conduct and Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement

As part of the Annual Performance Evaluation Discussions, each supervisor must review the Code of Conduct and a Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement with employees. Each employee must then complete the Disclosure Statement and return it to HR. The Code of Conduct and the Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement forms may be found below. For specific questions regarding the Code of Conduct or the Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement, please contact University Compliance Services at extension 8156 or visit their web page at www.uvu.edu/compliance.
