Staff Performance Appraisal Schedule

As we progress into the summer months, the Office of Human Resources will be initiating the annual performance appraisal process for staff in June. To assure that this process is productive, effective and positive, we are here to assist you and will assure that you are provided with tools for development as your annual evaluation is completed.

PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL SCHEDULE

The first step in the appraisal process is for staff to complete a self-assessment through Dynamic Forms. For your convenience, all staff will have access to prior performance appraisals in the portal under the Human Resources tab in “HR Appraisal History”.

All notifications will be generated through your Canisius e-mail account and will be sent directly from hr@canisius.edu on Monday June 3. Please save any E-mails that you receive regarding your appraisal.

  • Staff will receive an  E-mail invitation from hr@canisius.edu with a link to the Self-Assessment form on June 3.
  • Your self-assessment should be completed by Monday, July 1.
  • Once the assessment is completed, your supervisor will receive an E-mail notification advising them to move forward with the preparation of your performance appraisal.
  • Your supervisor has been asked to pre-schedule your appraisal meetings in advance to assure completion by July 31. Please check with your supervisor to confirm your date.

 Zoom sessions will be scheduled to assist staff in completing the self-assessment and additional sessions will be held for supervisors who are new to the process and have questions. Watch for additional information including dates and times.

 Please contact Linda Walleshauser at walleshl@canisius.edu or ext. 2244 or Mary Braun at braun5@canisius.edu  or ext. 2247 if you have any questions.
