Having a culture of collaboration helps organizations maximize employee knowledge and capabilities. Ideas and information spread more easily when employees communicate and collaborate across teams, departments, divisions, and campus, which can have a positive impact on employee and company performance.
In keeping with the Strategic Plan of Committing to Being an Employer of Choice and specific goals of improve and innovate internal communications and investing in our employees, it is recommended that Ithaca College move to a more versatile and agile performance process.
We recognize that our organization encompasses many industries and the creation of a more agile, manager/employee driven process will foster a culture of collaboration and communication. Supervisors and employees must be able to articulate their expectations, goals, and accomplishments in a manner that works best for them. We encourage supervisors and employees to work together to develop a frequent routine over the course of the year. The following options and resources are to serve as a guide in the development of this pilot performance process, but again, supervisors and employees are supported in making this process their own.
