It’s time to document your accomplishments, plan future work

It’s time to recognize the good work you’ve done with the City in 2015 and plan your work for 2016. While performance management happens all year long with regular conversations you should initiate with your supervisor, now is the time to formally document that work and look forward.

All employees in departments using PerformMinneapolis should complete the recognition and planning phases of the performance management system between November and February. Recognize your achievements by summarizing your accomplishments with a self-appraisal, meeting with your supervisor for a performance appraisal, and getting recognition from your supervisor for your accomplishments. The planning phase involves working with your supervisor to plan your work for the year ahead and set work expectations. Here’s a recommended schedule for your PerformMinneapolis activities:

You must complete all three activities in that order in Halogen by Feb. 28, 2016.

What’s in it for you?

PerformMinneapolis helps you:

Your self-appraisal includes five questions designed specifically to help you grow as an employee and to stimulate dialogue with your supervisor about how to achieve the growth and development you seek.

How to complete your self-appraisal

There are a number of tools available to help you successfully complete your self-appraisal.

Not using PerformMinneapolis yet?

If your department has not officially adopted the PerformMinneapolis model and you are not yet using the Halogen software, following these performance management steps is still good practice. Plus it’s a great opportunity to talk with your supervisor about your career growth and development.

Please work with your supervisor to learn about performance management in your area and follow your department’s procedures.
