Performance reviews offer you and your staff a great way to facilitate open, face-to-face communication of the employee's job performance over the past year, identifying accomplishments, development opportunities and goal setting for the next year.  Specific, constructive feedback aids in fostering employee satisfaction, engagement, increased productivity and retention as the employee recognizes how their role contributes to the success of the University. We continue to receive positive feedback that Tulane employees' value these discussions with their supervisors.

The review tool is comprised of three sections: 1) Employee Results, 2) Tulane Values and 3) Growth.

  1. Employee Results
    The Employee Results rating is based on the work performance as related to the key responsibilities and performance standards outlined in the job description for that position. Supervisors may also elect to measure Employee Results from goals that were established in the beginning of the rating period.

  2. Tulane Values
    The Tulane Values rating is based on behavioral values that are important to carrying out the fundamental mission of the University. Customer Focus, Initiative, Integrity & Trust, Positive Influence, Quality & Achievement Orientation, and Teamwork & Cooperation are the common values all staff members are evaluated upon. In addition, managerial staff members are reviewed based upon the values of Empowerment, Performance Excellence and Performance Management.

  3. Growth
    The Growth section addresses growth in skills/knowledge that the employee acquired over the past 12 months that enable him/her to contribute more to the University. Growth is also measured by assessing the contribution in activities or responsibilities that the employee now performs that he/she was not required to perform 12 months ago.
