A message from Amy Bosley, Vice President, Organizational Development and Human Resources
First I’d like to thank each of you for being so flexible and working through this implementation year of the Check-In, Valencia’s Performance Review Process, along with us. I know it’s been an adjustment, and some areas of the College have had less time than others to complete the Beginning-of-Year Check-In, due to the staggered training schedule. I really appreciate you taking good care of one another throughout this year of transition.
I am happy to tell you that we have a very high completion rate for the Beginning-of-Year Check-In. This is where most of the “heavy lifting” is done, as you have worked to answer important reflection questions, identified and discussed areas for growth and development and established your goals for the year.
As we are about to close out the 2014 – 2015 Check-In cycle, I would like to ask for your help with completing the Mid-Year and End-of Year Check-In steps. During these phases, you will simply update the status of completion of your goals and add meaningful comments as you reflect upon the year. If some goals need to carry over to the 2015 – 2016 Check-In cycle, that is okay, too. As a reminder, even though some of these dates have past, here are the Mid-Year and End-Of-Year Check-In deadlines:
Please work together to complete this year’s Check-In, so we can all start fresh with the 2015 – 2016 Beginning-of-Year Check-In. All full-time staff members will receive an email notification in May to signal that you can start the 2015 – 2016 Beginning-of-Year Check-In process.
If you have questions or would like additional information about the Check-In process, please contact the employee development team at firstname.lastname@example.org or your campus OD/HR director:
