Staff evaluation | Type A
University of the Fraser Valley encourages a work environment in which employees and supervisors communicate regularly about job performance. Performance feedback should include the employee’s progress towards achieving goals and objectives, recognition of individual accomplishments, and opportunities for growth. Ongoing communication helps ensure that there is a mutual understanding of job performance requirements and of the employee’s success in meeting them.
The purposes of evaluation are:
- To provide employees with information that will enable them to monitor and improve job skills and effectiveness, and to identify opportunities for growth.
- To confirm an employee’s suitability for reappointment or continuing appointment.
