This Month's Spotlight on Training: Performance Evaluations
- “Ack! I’m not ready to evaluate Joe tomorrow….. what do I tell him?”
- “I’m unsure what I should write for Julie’s evaluation comments. What do I say?”
- “I sure hope Bob doesn’t blow a gasket when we review all of those errors in performance this past year!”
- “How can I professionally tell Kim she is meeting my expectations, but it’s very borderline?”
Being a supervisor is MORE than just a pay raise. Leadership skills take quite some time to learn, most leader traits come from within and are honed over many months and years. One of the supervisory roles means you also ‘evaluate’ performance of others objectively, not subjectively. Performance Appraisals – Don’t You Just Love ‘Em is designed to help leaders refine their people skills, when it pertains to evaluating subordinates, and being in the right frame of mind. If you are frustrated by previous outcomes when doing performance evaluations why not learn something new and help yourself out?
Get a good handle on the appraisals’ value, and learn effective ways to achieve trust and respect with your staff using tools learned in this session. Appropriately done, an appraisal experience is constructive, helpful, and a positive growth factor in the development of your employees. This training session helps you not only removing bias, but also avoiding many common errors and improving your interpersonal skills during a taxing time. The cooperative effort between you and your employee can help your department’s professional growth.
The evaluations won’t be so difficult once you come to this training!
State of ND now has an online application system!
The new online recruiting system provides much more functionality to our agency recruiters and hiring managers, as well to the applicants who apply for positions with the State. PLUS: Current employees already have a Candidate Gateway account via their PeopleSoft page. All state employees should access open state jobs by logging in to PeopleSoft, selecting “My Career”, and then “Careers”. CURRENT EMPLOYEES (ON PEOPLESOFT) SHOULD NOT CREATE AN ACCOUNT AND APPLY VIA THE PUBLIC SITE! Some job openings may be available to current state employees only and those jobs will not show on the public website. State employees should always search for open jobs through Peoplesoft by logging into their PeopleSoft account.
Below is a screen shot of our new vacancy announcement page available to the general public at www.nd.gov/hrms/jobs/announcements.asp.
