The annual performance review period for staff will run from January 19 through March 31, for all campuses, including the University of Miami Hospitals. Reviews should take into account an employee’s performance from the 2015 calendar year, keeping in mind that performance ratings will directly affect merit increase planning. It is important for all regular full- and part-time employees to participate in this process, providing self-assessments, receiving clear feedback from their supervisors, and defining goals for the coming year. Click here to review important deadlines and reminders. If you have any questions about the performance review process, please visit miami.edu/eappraisal or send an email to email@example.com.
