Annual Goal Setting and Employee Performance Reviews

The goal setting and review process is a cooperative practice that provides employees and managers the opportunity to work together to craft goals based on mutual perspective. The goals will mirror organizational goals and business needs.


Each year, employees collaborate with their managers to set performance and development goals for the year.

Goals should be set in Workday by May 31 and then updated throughout the year.


On an ongoing basis, employees and managers meet one-on-one to discuss performance and development feedback. Goals should be updated to reflect any changes.


This optional step in the review allows you to comment directly on your performance goals in Workday. 

You can enter your comments October 23 - October 29.


Once employees submit their optional self-evaluation OR starting Monday, October 30, 2017, supervisors must conduct performance reviews of employees goals using the five-point rating system.


Employees and managers meet to hold year-end conversations about performance ratings.

Performance reviews should take place December 23, 2017 - February 28, 2018.


Mark your calendars in preparation for the 2017 performance review dates and deadlines.
