SHRA Performance Management

Effective April 1, 2016, UNC General Administration implemented a new SHRA Performance Appraisal Policy to align performance management practices amongst the University of North Carolina System institutions. The new SHRA Performance Appraisal Program places emphasis on both institutional goals and individual goals while streamlining the content of the performance plan, standardizing the categories for evaluation, increasing the accuracy and defensibility of performance ratings, and promoting effective communication between employees and supervisors. The new policy and program applies to all SHRA probationary, time-limited and permanent, and career status employees. This policy does not apply to temporary employees. The University will implement the new SHRA Performance Appraisal Program effective April 1, 2017, for the 2017-2018 performance cycle.
