Talent@GW - Performance

Talent@ GW - Performance will launch in two phases. Several groups at GW will participate in the Performance Pilot starting in December 2017. The system will rollout to the rest of the university in Summer 2018.


Starting in December 2017, several groups at GW will begin participating in a pilot of Talent@ GW - Performance. Groups were chosen so to provide a cross-sampling of staff throughout GW's schools and divisions, and employees who are participating in the pilot will be asked to provide their feedback and thoughts on the system.

When will the pilot take place? 

The pilot will run from December 5, 2017 to September 30, 2018.

How do I access the system if I am part of the pilot group?

When the pilot launches in December, you will automatically have access to Talent@ GW - Performance if you are part of the pilot group.

Can I access Talent@  GW - Performance even if I'm not part of the pilot? 

During the pilot period, only groups who have been identified as being part of the pilot will have access. The system will rollout to the rest of the university in Summer 2018. Groups not in the pilot will begin using Talent@ GW - Performance for their annual reviews at that time.

How do I provide feedback if I am part of the pilot group?

Employees in the pilot group will be asked to provide feedback via surveys in the system, by participating in focus groups, and by reaching out to designated contacts within their school or division. 

Performance Pilot Schedule Overview

For years staff and managers at GW have used a paper process for Performance Management. In addition to being time-consuming for staff to write and managers to review, a paper process has also meant that formally tracking achievements year-to-year, identifying professional development opportunities, and tying performance to merit pay have been inefficient and difficult tasks.

Talent@ GW - Performance will streamline the Performance Management process. Instead of using outdated paper forms, Talent@ GW - Performance will allow all performance reviews to be completed online in a single, easy-to-access location with tools that make both writing and reviewing faster and easier.

Talent@ GW - Performance will integrate with other employee information in the system, saving time and helping employees identify and pursue opportunities for growth in their chosen career path. For example, employees can use Talent@ GW – Learning to populate professional development plans, making the process more efficient than ever.

The Talent@ GW - Performance pilot is planned to launch in December 2017, with rollout to the entire university in Summer 2018.
