Performance Management

Performance Management

Performance management is a process that promotes conversation and feedback between supervisors and employees. The performance appraisal system is also a valuable tool to develop individual capacity and skill. Appalachian State University provides the AppState Careers performance management module as a tool for setting meaningful goals and evaluating employees fairly and consistently across the organization.

Policies

In April 2016, the UNC System approved a new SHRA Performance Appraisal Policy (PDF, 46 KB) which standardizes performance expectations for all SHRA employees in the University system. These standards have been incorporated into our upgraded AppState Careers system. In addition, the UNC System approved new Regulations for EHRA Non-Faculty employee performance appraisals, that have also been incorporated into the AppState Careers system.
