The Boulder Campus performance management program for classified staff can be found on the campus Human Resources website.
In summary, consistent with Colorado Personnel Board Rules, all permanent classified staff, including those who hold permanent part-time employment must receive an annual performance plan, a performance evaluation, and an overall performance rating for each classified staff position an individual employee occupies. Supervisors are not required to complete performance plans, evaluations, and overall performance ratings for temporary employees including retirees occupying temporary classified staff positions.
Supervisors must conduct evaluation meetings with their employees starting April 1 to close out the previous evaluation cycle (April 1 - March 31 of the prior year). A copy of the completed evalution and rating form must be received by the College, via DocuSign, to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15. Once received and reviewed by the College, the College will forward to Employee Relations for final processing. All classified staff hired on or before March 31 must receive an evaluation.
The new performance management cycle begins on April 1. Supervisors must begin conducting performance planning meeting(s) to communicate new performance goals for the new performance cycle.
All classified staff hired on or before March 31 must receive an evaluation.
A copy of the completed performance plan must be received by the College, via DocuSign, to email@example.com by May 15. Once received and reviewed by the College, the College will forward to Employee Relations for final processing.
