Working with the Self-Evaluation Inbox Task
Once you are in your Workday Inbox, you will see a task to start your employee self-evaluation. The task offers two different ways of working through the evaluation. You can switch from one view to the other at any time.
Work Accomplishments/Areas of Strength
Use this area to highlight things that you have accomplished in your job within the last performance cycle and/or your areas of strength.
Key Area(s) of Growth and Development
This section of the evaluation focuses on your areas of growth and development. You will be able to identify any areas where you could further develop in your position.
Manager Support / Career Aspirations
Identify any challenges or obstacles that occurred this past year that you need help addressing in order to meet your goals or be successful in your job. Career Aspirations is an optional section where you can share your future career plans with your manager.
Enter the job goals you would like to work on for the next year. Check out the SMART Goals page and Goal Setting Webinar for tips.
Manager Overview / Supporting Documents
Enter comments on your overall performance this past cycle in Manager Overview and attach any documents that will help your manager better evaluate your work.
Summary View, Submitting the Self-Evaluation, & Next Steps
When you're satisfied with your self-evaluation, submit it. Once it’s sent, wait while your manager does their next steps. Once your manager approves your self-evaluation, it can no longer be edited.
How to Retrieve & Print Your Evaluation
You can print your performance evaluation(s) from the Performance worklet or from your Workday profile.
