By now, you should have started your PEP process, due March 31, including reviewing your goals and completing your self-evaluation. Your supervisor will then need to complete the manager evaluation. Your final step will be the performance discussion.
The Performance Discussion
The performance discussion is an important process that sets mutual expectations and clear goals. But this shouldn’t be the only time you meet with your employee.
Having regular one-on-ones on a consistent schedule will ensure that you are keeping your team members engaged and providing an open line of communication and accountability. One-on-ones are not just to catch up on projects. Use this time to:
- Gauge how team members are responding to change
- Recognize the level of engagement on the team
- Discuss the employee’s interests and concerns in a dedicated space and time
If there are concerns, one-on-ones are the best time to discuss these because your employee can prepare and feel comfortable and they will be open to coaching BEFORE the performance evaluation process.
PEP Frequently Asked Questions
We understand the PEP can be an intricate process, so here are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions:
How do I access the system?
Go to unmjobs.unm.edu and click on the teal box for current UNM Employees. In the UNMJobs dashboard, use the Performance dropdown menu to access your goals, performance reviews and PEP resources.
Where is my review? I submitted it but my Supervisor does not have it.
Make sure the employee clicked on the “Submit” button. We can always reopen to add goals or make changes. There can also be the chance the Supervisor is incorrect. In that case you can email us at PEP@unm.edu.
My employee has someone else who manages them day to day that is not their Supervisor on record. How can I get that person to do the review since UNM Jobs now uses the Supervisor record?
We can add a co-planner so that the person who manages them day to day can complete the review. We cannot add the co-planner though until the employee submits their self-evaluation.
