Performance Descriptors

Supervisors will assign a performance descriptor to describe each staff member’s overall job performance as part of each annual performance review. The descriptors, as defined on this webpage by the employee’s relative performance, are recorded at the time of the performance evaluation. By referring to this descriptor, supervisors will more easily factor performance in determining salary increases for July 1, as part of the University’s budget cycle. The potential impact of each descriptor on individual salary decisions is described in the descriptor ratings.
