City wins award for work on performance management

An international human resources association recently recognized the City for its work on performance management. On June 6, the International Public Management Association for Human Resources Central Region recognized the Human Resources Department with a Best Practices Award for its commitment to sound performance management practices. The association gives Best Practices Awards for successful human resources programs that improve service delivery and recognizable, innovative and positive outcomes.

In 2009, the City began overhauling its performance management system. To date, 20 of 22 departments have implemented the new system, PerformMinneapolis. Through PerformMinneapolis, participation in annual performance appraisals at the City has risen in the past four years from approximately 70 percent to 96 percent. Employee engagement scores associated with performance management also improved in the last employee engagement survey. These statements surveyed employee engagement:

In accepting the award from Lawrence Miskel, president of the association’s central region, Human Resources Manager Bill Champa acknowledged the ongoing support and commitment of City employees and leadership to performance management.

In addition to the City winning the award, Human Resources Manager Chuck Bernardy was elected as the next president of the International Public Management Association for Human Resources Central Region.

PerformMinneapolis is the City’s comprehensive performance management system. It’s how we plan and do our work with an emphasis on results.
