IC HR Cloud: Performance Review for Supervisors

Performance reviews assess employee goals, work and accomplishments during the year, and when managed professionally, openly, and honestly, reviews can help enhance working relationships, understanding of personal and professional goals, and performance. Reviews can also help ensure employees are recognized for their work and are being provided the right training opportunities to acquire further skills, which can be beneficial for both the employee and the College. Performance reviews offer supervisors the opportunity to culminate the conversations they are having with their employees throughout the year to review personal and professional goals, to set goals and ambitions for the upcoming year, and to reflect on areas of growth, improvement or advancement.


This article is intended for all staff and faculty employees with staff supervisory responsibilities.

Self-Assessment Overview

The Performance Review Process begins with your direct report completing a Self-Evaluation. The information presented in the self-evaluation should guide you during your Supervisor Evaluation by providing additional insight into, and their perception of, their overall performance.

Employee Guide

A separate Performance Review – Employee Guide is available via TDX, outlining the Employee’s responsibilities and tasks during the Annual Performance Review Process. 

Part 3. Participant Feedback

Requesting Participant Feedback

While the employee is completing their self-evaluation, you will be requesting others to provide feedback as a direct report or peer. For your direct reports who also have supervisory responsibilities, the participant feedback you solicit will provide context about your employee's management style, support of their direct reports and their success as a leader.  This step is required if the employee has direct reports. It is encouraged to request feedback from peers.

Follow these instructions to invite direct reports and peers to provide feedback:

  1. Select the ellipsis [...] next to the employee’s name, then Request Feedback for Employee’s Annual Performance Review.
  2. Select add button in Participant section.  Use the smart search bar to add your employee direct reports, peers and/or next-level supervisor, then use the drop-down menu to add the participant type for each added person.
  3. Once finished adding participants, click Send Request in the top, right corner. 

       4. Click submit and add additional participants as needed.

Sharing the Performance Document to the Employee

It is recommended that you release the document prior to meeting with the individual, giving them time to review before the performance meeting.

  • Select Share and Retain prior to the meeting. This allows you to share the review with the employee but retain control of the document and make changes and add comments, if necessary.

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 occur 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 contribute 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 goals should be established, including a plan for routine check-in meetings throughout the year.    

Release the Performance Document to the Employee & Confirm Performance Meeting

After the performance meeting, supervisors should make any applicable edits, then Share and Release the document to the employee.

A second Information Call-out will appear instructing you to confirm that the Performance Meeting was held. Click the Indicate Meeting Held button and enter the date of the performance meeting, then click submit in the top, right corner.
