More About Employee Goals
Proper goal setting is foundational for good performance. In the first part of the evaluation, the manager and employee may review the goals from the last performance cycle to help assess work accomplishments/areas of strength, and then look forward by agreeing upon new goals that will be accomplished in the new performance year. Individual goals should support department objectives that are aligned with the overall objectives and mission of the college when possible. Even when strategic plans have not been communicated, the needs of those you serve are good starting points for setting meaningful goals. Please check the SMART Goals for guidelines ensuring the goals that have been entered meet standards. You may also wish to view the Goal Setting Webinar for additional tips.
