The performance evaluation is an important tool to support the professional development of University employees. Evaluations provide an opportunity to recognize employees' contributions, and to encourage collaboration between supervisors and employees in aligning goals and performance with the mission and values of the University.
Evaluations for Classified Employees
Classified employees of the University are evaluated on a fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) basis in accordance with Louisiana State Civil Service rules, through the Performance Evaluation System (PES) in Cornerstone. Supervisors of Classified employees outline behavior and work expectations at the start of each fiscal year. Employees are rated at the conclusion of each fiscal year.
