Our performance management program is designed to encourage and promote communication between employees and their supervisors throughout the year. We believe that thoughtful conversations and honest assessments:
- Foster two-way communication between employees and supervisors
- Support the development of clear, consistent and measurable goals linked directly to Wellesley's core values and overall mission
- Help to articulate and support training needs and continuous career development and
- Establish appropriate criteria for making reward and recognition decisions.
The Performance Management Process
We encourage open and ongoing communication between employees and their supervisors throughout the year. We also have formal processes for goal setting, an interim goal check-in and the annual performance assessment. Most employees will complete these phases with their supervisor using Workday. Goal Setting in Workday step-by-step instructions. Annual Review in Workday step-by-step instructions.
