CSI Performance Management System


There are five critical components of performance management in the College of Southern Idaho's Performance Management System. These have been identified as vital to quality performance management and have become our guidelines.

Star1. Establish key job responsibilities - A critical element and first step in performance planning is to define the primary purpose and responsibilities of the position.

2. Review established performance objectives - This is a review of objectives that gave the employee focus and direction for the review period.

3. Review employee performance - Core Performance Standards are competencies and critical work behaviors that are necessary for job success and ensure consistency across the College. All employees are to be evaluated on these Core Performance factors.

4. Summarize Performance and Summarize (4-Q format) or Summarize and Assign an Overall Rating (Long format) - An overall summary or summary and rating of the employee's performance during the rating period is completed for all employees. This allows supervisors to to summarize performance, support salary increases, and identify employee development opportunities. Rating levels may be printed here.

5. Establish Performance Objectives for Next Rating Period - These are mutually developed and recorded by employee and supervisor. They provide direction and outline job expectations for the future. They link to goals and objectives of the department and the Mission of the College.
