Performance Management

Performance management is an ongoing process of communication between a supervisor and employee, focused on helping the employee achieve his or her best workplace results. It requires thoughtful planning, ongoing communication and commitment.  Human Resources assists managers and professionals in establishing performance expectations and accountability to ensure productive employees and work environments.
