The Performance Management@Stanford program challenges you to excel in skills that you may not use all of the time. Each phase has its own To-Do List and Toolkit to support your skill building and reinforce the tenets of the program.
The Mid-Year Check-In gives employees and managers an opportunity to discuss goal accomplishments in the first half of the year; explore and understand priorities for the remainder of the year; and discuss progress against the development plan. It allows managers to give specific feedback and coaching, as well as provide a general sense of how performance is being measured without assigning ratings. An important part of the mid-year conversation is to recognize an employee's contributions.
The Year-End Review is the formal performance assessment for the year. The purpose of a year-end assessment is to review achievements against goals and competencies, celebrate your successes, and document the progress you have made on your development plan. It also helps to ensure that all employees are fairly assessed, have a sense of accomplishment, and clearly understand how their accomplishments have helped drive Stanford's mission of excellence.
