Annual Performance Evaluation Forms Have Changed
By Carmella A. Huser
The performance evaluation forms that we will be using this year have
been substantially revised. The revisions more fully integrate safety
into the evaluation process, make the forms easier to use and more
clearly describe the responsibilities of those who supervise staff and
those who do not supervise others.
1. There are two new performance evaluation forms, one for
Non-Supervisory Staff and another for Supervisors and Leads. These forms
are available on line (http://www-group.slac.stanford.edu/hr/forms.html).
Old evaluation forms should not be used.
2. The performance period has been extended to 13 months this year, from
April 1, 2004 through April 30, 2005. In the future, the evaluation
period will be May 1 through April 30.
3. Individual goals developed as a result of the Integrated Safety
Management System must be included in the goal setting process.
4. Supervisors must certify that the annual review of the routine Job
Hazard Analysis and Mitigation (JHAM) process has been completed with
the employee prior to the completion of the appraisal process and that
the ES&H Employee Training Assessment (ETA) has been reviewed and
updated as appropriate.
5. Forms must be submitted to Claudia Ransom (HU) on June 10 for
non-bargaining unit employees and on June 30 for bargaining unit
Who is Evaluated?
All regular employees must be evaluated, excluding Research Associates
or new employees who have been at SLAC for less than one year. New
employees are evaluated on their one-year anniversary date.
Evaluations should be completed by the assigned supervisor. For
employees who carry out extended assignments under the oversight of
other work groups, the assigned supervisor should solicit and integrate
input from the management of those other work groups. The evaluations of
recently transferred employees should be completed by the assigned
supervisor with input from the former supervisor.
Attend a Performance Evaluation Workshop
All supervisors and managers conducting performance evaluations are
expected to attend one of the Performance Evaluation Workshops. In
addition to explaining the performance evaluation process and forms,
this year’s workshops will stress: (1) how to set safety and other
performance goals and (2) how to conduct performance meetings with
