Deadline extended for 2022 Staff Goal Setting

From HR:

We hope you have been able to have many meaningful conversations throughout the last few months regarding your division, team, and personal goals. We know many of you are waiting to hear more specifics from your executives on what their goals are before entering your own goals. To allow more time for executive goals to cascade, we are extending the Goal Setting process deadline in UVU Perform to August 12 (login to myUVU, Employees, New Employee Management in green at the top right).

We also want to emphasize that the Goal Setting process is meant to be a resource for employees, not just something for compliance. The objective is to facilitate goal setting conversations at every level of the university, which is a culture shift from previous years.

We appreciate your patience while we work through this new process. We will collect feedback after the process is complete to understand how we can improve the process, gather your suggestions, and review what works well for future years.

Right now is an opportunity to continue to have conversations at every level regarding personal, team, and division goals and where the goals are at in the process.

If you have any questions about the process, system, or the goal sharing function, review the Performance Processes information in myUVU or contact HR at extension 8207. Staff Goal Setting guides, FAQs, and trainings can be found here: Staff Performance Development information in myUVU.
