Performance Process Overview and General Information

The purpose of performance management at VCU is to establish a clear, consistent foundation for creating performance goals strategically aligned with university goals,  tracking employee progress, providing valuable feedback, and evaluating overall performance. Performance management begins with the establishment of clear expectations and well-defined behaviors that cascade from the university’s strategic priorities and values to the school/unit level and to each employee, providing a direct line of sight from the individual’s goals to the university’s mission and vision.  It includes a mechanism for discussing useful and meaningful feedback on accomplishments and competencies, including coaching discussions on career growth as well as rewarding and recognizing high performers.
