IC HR Cloud: Performance Review for Employees

The IC Annual Performance Review process provides an opportunity for staff and supervisors to step back from day-to-day activities to reflect on accomplishments of the previous year. This is also a time to realize career opportunities and to set clear goals and expectations for future success. Overall, the Performance Review Process encourages a method for us to celebrate career performance and identify ways to further enhance our professional development.

Part 4. Performance Meeting

Performance Meeting Overview

Supervisors and employees are required to meet one-on-one to discuss the Annual Performance Review. Annual Performance Reviews are not meant to be a surprise to the employee, as regular check-ins should have been occurring year-round.

Performance Meeting Agenda

Performance meetings can be held in-person or virtually and should be between forty-five (45) and sixty (60) minutes in length. Both the employee and supervisor should be contributing to the conversation regarding each section of the Performance Review document. At the end of the meeting, goals and an action plan for accomplishing those goal should be put in place, including routine check in meetings throughout the year.

Final Feedback Overview

Once your supervisor confirms the performance meeting was held, the Annual Performance Review will be returned to you for any Final Feedback. An Information Call-Out will appear. Click Continue to enter in any final comments.

Click the verification box and then Submit in the top, right-hand corner.
