  3. Ensure that employee goals are aligned to department and division priorities for the year.
  4. Show employees how to write measurable/behavioral goals and enter information into Talent Web (use online tip sheets), including how to submit goals to Supervisors.
  5. Once the goals are agreed upon, ask each employee to document goals in UR Talent Web no later than September 30th each year (some departments may choose to enter goals as early as May).
  6. Approve the goals in UR Talent Web. (Linked?)
  7. Ask employee to document performance against the goals throughout the year by entering comments into UR Talent Web regularly. Supervisor should also add comments throughout the year to track progress against goals and communicate how the employee is performing.
  8. Note: Goals can be entered anytime of the year by the employee and the Supervisor. Supervisors can also assign goals to individual employees or to the whole team.
