Goal Setting

At the beginning of each performance year, supervisors and employers establish expectations for the year ahead. Individual performance goals should be aligned to the priorities of the department and describe specifically what each employee is accountable to achieve that year. Once agreed upon, the goals are documented in UR Talent Web. Employees and supervisors can go into UR Talent Web at any time of the year to add comments on accomplishments and progress towards the goals. Additionally, goals can be updated or removed if department or University priorities change throughout the year. For more help writing goals, review the SMART Goals Worksheet; examples of SMART goals, and UR Talent Web Goal Setting Tip Sheet.
