Administrative Directive

Introduction

A performance appraisal system is used to evaluate the work performance of College employees. This written performance evaluation tool promotes communication because it provides feedback to employees and enables employees and supervisors to set annual work-related goals and objectives.

Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) is committed to helping its employees attain satisfying and challenging opportunities for growth. The College recognizes that learning and growth are continuing processes. The performance evaluation process facilitates communication between employees and supervisors. The performance evaluation should address work performance for the period being evaluated; this includes performance strengths and weaknesses.

1. Annual Performance Evaluation

1.1 Supervisors annually provide a written evaluation of employees. Completed evaluations must be submitted to Human Resources between January 1 and March 31. They cover the previous year's work performance and establish goals and objectives for the upcoming year.

1.2 The supervisor and employee jointly establish work-related goals and objectives that are specific, measurable, realistic, challenging and attainable. The supervisor has final approval of goals, objectives and performance ratings.
