[email protected] - Performance

[email protected] GW - Performance launched in two phases. Several groups at GW are participated in the Performance Pilot, which started in December 2017. The system was rolled out to the rest of the university in 2018.

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

[email protected] GW - Performance has streamlined the performance management process. Instead of using outdated paper forms, [email protected] GW - Performance allows all performance reviews to be completed online in a single, easy-to-access location with tools that make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.

[email protected] GW - Performance integrates 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 [email protected] GW – Learning to populate professional development plans, making the process more efficient than ever.

Starting in December 2017, several groups at GW began participating in a pilot of [email protected] GW - Performance. Groups were chosen to provide a cross-sampling of staff throughout GW's schools and divisions, and employees who participated in the pilot were asked to provide their feedback and thoughts on the system.

When did the pilot take place? 

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

How did the pilot group provide feedback?

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