5. Performance appraisals

The annual performance appraisal is an opportunity for managers to provide confidential and constructive feedback to staff regarding their performance per the requirements of the job description and Waterloo's principles of the workplace.1 It is used to identify areas of success, the need for improvement if necessary, and opportunities for the future. 

Each Waterloo staff member receives a performance review once a year. The results of this review are reflected in the merit process that a staff member participates in on May 1. Mid-year check-ins may take place to review the objectives set for the current year, and to revise priorities as necessary.

1 The Basic Principles and the Principles of Inclusivity represent Waterloo’s principles on behaviour in the workplace.
