This summer, UF Human Resources is modernizing its approach to TEAMS staff appraisals. UF Engaged is designed to provide more regular feedback rather than once-a-year evaluations. On Tuesday, May 21, UFHR will host a town hall for leaders and TEAMS employees who are interested in learning more about how this new approach to evaluations will work and some best practices for making the transition a smooth one.
The event will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Teaching Classroom (Room 209) of Emerson Alumni Hall and will be streamed live via Mediasite and recorded for those who are not able to make it in person.
The town hall is just one of a variety ways UFHR will be reaching out to campus to ensure faculty and staff have a chance to learn about UF Engaged. More information about the initiative—including frequently asked questions, upcoming events and a communications archive—may now be found on the UFHR website at hr.ufl.edu/uf-engaged. The website will continue to be updated over the coming months with additional resources and will serve as an information hub for the initiative on an ongoing basis.
This week, UF leaders will receive an email with a list of their current direct reports, as listed in the myUFL system. A careful review of this list will help ensure the ePerformance module that will support the new evaluation and feedback process is configured properly when the new system is launched in July.
Over the coming months, leaders will also begin to receive monthly emails designed to provide best practices and tools to support them in having more clear, timely and meaningful conversations with their staff.
