Performance Management

President DesRoches communication regarding the new staff performance management program

What is Performance Management?

Performance Management is an ongoing partnership between supervisors and staff to accomplish university and departmental goals. The process focuses on aligning employee roles and goals with the university’s mission and supporting employee development and performance.

Why is Rice implementing a standardized performance management program?

  • Establish a common language for performance expectations and evaluation, encourage consistent communication and alignment between supervisors and staff.
  • Facilitate succession planning by identifying and developing high-potential employees to ensure Rice has a pipeline of qualified talent to meet the needs of the University.
  • Develop staff by regularly providing feedback and opportunities for growth, which increases job satisfaction, motivation, and productivity.
