Xavier carries out its mission through the individual and collective contributions of its employees. Employees need to know how those contributions are aligned with university goals, that their unique styles and skills are recognized and utilized, that they are treated with respect, and that they are provided feedback on how their behaviors/actions align with our Jesuit values. And supervisors need to act in a transparent manner and initiate ongoing feedback to build trust. This understanding is at the heart of our Performance Management program.
Xavier University is committed to a performance management program that inspires all employees to perform at their best by:
- aligning the work performed by supervisors and employees with departmental and university goals,
- promoting a consistent methodology in performance assessment through fairness and transparency, and
- fostering and rewarding excellent performance.
Goal Setting - Planning Phase
Goal setting is the bridge that connects our university goals to successful results. When we set goals, we're looking for ways to break strategy down into relevant, measurable, and attainable elements - all of which combine to drive the strategy so the university can achieve numerous benefits, including sustained development and enhancement of campus resources to support our students' lives, sustained financial well-being, and sustained focused on growth and engagement of our employees at Xavier. There is good information available for you here on the Performance Management page to help you Xcel in your goal setting!
