Gather supporting documentation

Supporting documentation that aligns with your Performance Management Plan is optional for the performance review process. Examples of supporting documentation include emails, written performance counseling, customer feedback, survey results, supervisory notes, database/spreadsheets, and/or work samples within the current rating cycle.

This information can be shared with your Supervisor during your 1:1 performance review conversation that will take place October 21 - November 7.

TTS performance rating tool

Use of this tool is optional but can be helpful in determining what your end-of-year rating may be once the performance review is complete. This tool can be used as a reference during your 1:1 performance review session with your supervisor. Note that your supervisor will make final rating determinations on all specific measures associated with your performance plan.
