Performance Management Resources

It's about your contributions and the role you play in supporting your organization and the overall university mission.

As the university's performance management program for staff, Performance Management@Stanford provides approaches, processes, and tools to help you be your best in your career.

Our Approach

We've designed this program around three principles. We believe:

  • Development fuels excellence
    This isn't just our idea. Research shows that the key to advancing excellence and deepening job and personal satisfaction is continuous growth and development.

  • A good performance management process should be transparent, fair, and respectful
    If we are to develop as individuals and as teams, it's imperative that there be great communication and trust between all of us, and that we build good communication into our processes.

  • We want all staff, including you, to be recognized consistently across the university
    Consistency counts.

Our Goal

Through the program, our goal is to nurture a culture of excellence at Stanford. Excellence is fundamental to Stanford, and nurturing excellence among employees is fundamental to this program.

We believe that excellence:

  • Is based on continuous development, fairness, transparency, and consistency
  • Is more than just doing well or meeting expectations
  • Is about getting better, developing, growing, improving, and giving it your all every day
