Performance Management

Performance Management at Holy Cross

2024 Performance Evaluation Period is from February 26th to April 26th.

Holy Cross is committed to the growth and development of each staff member, and places high value on the performance evaluation conversation and process in order to support our employees. Supervisors are responsible for supporting the growth and development of their employees. Throughout this process, supervisors and employees will be asked to collaborate with one another to establish goals for an employee’s own personal development that relates directly to the larger department, division, or College-wide goals. Employees will also be asked to reflect upon the goals set during the previous performance evaluation so progress toward those goals can be assessed.

This year’s annual review begins Monday, February 26th, 2024 and should be completed by April 26th, 2024. The period of performance to be reviewed is the academic year, and preceding summer, generally from May 2023 through April 2024. The performance review should be a developmental exercise. Holy Cross managers are expected to help employees perform their best work and find satisfaction, reward, and purpose in their jobs. The performance evaluation process is a critical tool to accomplish this.

Giving & Receiving Feedback

Kim McCullen, Workforce Development Specialist 

This workshop will provide employees and managers with skills for engaging in healthy conversations related to feedback and performance management.
