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 entered in Workday by March 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.


Periodic goal assessments support a more streamlined performance review process that includes employee self-evaluations and manager’s performance evaluations.


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



Once employees submit their optional self-evaluation, 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.


Mark your calendars in preparation for the 2020 performance review dates and deadlines.
