Introducing ACHIEVE. UCI’s new staff performance program.

WHY

TO IMPROVE ORGANIZATIONAL PERFORMANCE

UCI is a premiere public research university and academic medical center. To maintain our position and advance even higher, we must work smarter, better, faster. We have to encourage bold, innovative thinking, allow for calculated failure and learn from our mistakes in order to continually improve our organization and meet the demands of tomorrow. To achieve this, we must become an agile, performance driven, engaged workforce, and the way we do this is through a staff performance program that supports such a workforce.

WHAT

BELOW ARE THE KEY ELEMENTS OF ACHIEVE.

  • Staff alignment with UCI success
  • Informal quarterly check-ins
  • Regular mentoring, coaching and development
  • Define 1 to 5 performance goals
  • Four meaningful check-in discussion questions

NO MORE

  • Annual performance evaluations
  • Annual performance ratings

HOW

IT'S AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3

Starting July 1, 2017, non-represented employees will no longer complete annual performance evaluations. Instead, they will participate in quarterly check-ins with their managers.
