Utilize Performance Evaluations to Discuss and Plan Employee Goals and Development for 2018-19
The 2018-19 performance year begins July 1. While finalizing 2017-18 appraisals and having conversations with employees, it is an ideal time to think about and plan goals (LIFT) and areas of growth (CCE) for 2018-19.

Best practices in performance evaluations focus on the future and how outcomes and opportunities identified in one year lead to planning for the next year. Encourage your team members to discuss and begin drafting meaningful SMART goals and areas of development that align to work expected for 2018-19. Please refer to LIFT levels as you set goals for the year. Register for a Goal-Setting Workshop and visit the LIFT and CCE pages for more information.
