April 2015 launched the start of the annual performance review season.  The annual staff evaluation is a key component of the College's performance management process and provides a valuable opportunity for managers and their staff to review and discuss past performance, clarify job duties, set goals and establish expectations for the coming year.  The review process will continue to follow the same overall approach as last year. The main enhancement to the process is the addition of 13 core competency areas for comments and feedback. The College expects that all staff will participate in the process.
