Each employee should have at least one Objective listed in Section One of their ADP Planning Form in support of our long range plan (effective January 2012). The following resources are provided to assist supervisors in establishing an Objective or Job Duty for their employees and facilitating a discussion on the importance of Diversity and Inclusion:

  • ADP Diversity and Inclusion Guide (PDF) The Objective or Job Duty listed in Section One of the ADP should be within the scope of the employee's job during the rated year and be provided as part of the Planning Meeting.
  • ADP Diversity and Inclusion Talking Points (PDF) The discussion of the Objective/Job Duty will also open a dialog between the employee and supervisor during which time the supervisor can relate to the employee the importance of Diversity and Inclusion for the success of the University’s Long Range Plan.

Op7.07-4 Performance Improvement Plan

The Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) documents required performance improvement when an employee's overall performance rating is less than competent, or if the supervisor determines current performance or behavior requires improvement.  The Performance Improvement Plan includes a description of what behavior(s), performance(s), situation(s), or condition(s) must be changed along with what is to be done by the employee, what is to be done by the supervisor, and when the improved level of performance is to be achieved.  Specific conditions for determining that improvement has occurred should be set so that both the employee and the supervisor will know if success has been achieved.  Please refer to the Appraisal and Development Plan website for additional information and resources for completing the PIP form and process.
