Performance Management

Performance Evaluations


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.

Unclassified Staff members of the University are evaluated annually on a calendar year basis (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31) based on their performance during the previous year.  Supervisors rate employees based on their progress towards goals and competencies.
