SHRA Performance Management

NC State University’s commitment and practice is to provide timely performance feedback to each SHRA employee.  The development of annual performance plans and regular performance appraisals provide an opportunity for employees to understand how their responsibilities and performance expectations align with the goals and priorities of their work unit and the University’s strategic plan initiatives.  The 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 policy and program applies to all SHRA probationary, time-limited and career status employees.
