Mid-year goal and job changes

Employees may encounter circumstances, such as a change in work duties, that necessitate a mid-year change in performance goals. Employees may enter goal modifications and new goals in Talent@VCU at any time during the performance cycle. Managers are notified by Talent@VCU of new goals or changed goals and receive a request to review and approve.  

At other times, employees may have concerns regarding ongoing heavy workload requiring consistent long hours, negatively impacting work/life balance. In this situation, employees are encouraged meet with their manager to discuss their concerns and ideas for improvements.  

If this does not resolve the situaiton, other avenues include:

  1. Discussing concerns with their HR professional.
  2. Contacting the VCU HR Office of Employee Relations.
  3. Utilizing the VCU HR Organizational Effectiveness program (OE), which offers a review of workload distribution among teams, identifies imbalances and proposes changes for increasing efficiency. Outreach to OE is typically made by the manager of the unit.
