The University is committed to the development of a culture of high performance and excellence. Fundamental to this commitment is the provision of a fair and effective performance review framework that aims to enhance the performance of our general staff and provide opportunities for personal recognition. The University encourages staff and supervisors to engage in regular discussions around performance and career development throughout the year that culminates in an annual review of performance.
What you need to do
Effective performance management is an accountability for all general staff within the University on a continuing and fixed-term contract of greater than 12 months. It is expected that staff and supervisors will:
- regularly review the position description
- develop clear expectations and ensure role clarity
- participate in regular discussions about performance
- at the annual review, assess progress from the previous review period and set objectives and goals for the forthcoming review period.

Undertaking an Annual Review
ePerformance has been designed to replace the paper-based method of recording the annual review. The system will provide transparency and line of sight for managers, ability for peer reviews, provide an attachment framework, along with a performance notes capability for staff and supervisors. It will also provide an electronic repository of reviews allowing ongoing access to performance review documents via 'My Staff Page' for both staff and supervisors.
