Xavier University carries out its mission through the individual and collective contributions of a committed and engaged workforce. Employees need to understand how their respective contributions are aligned with University goals. They desire to be supported, treated with respect and recognized for unique styles and skills.

The benefits of goal setting are:
Managers and employees should develop goals together and document them at the start of the fiscal year. Ideally, this should happen immediately after the annual performance review discussion. The goals should support the overall objectives of the organization, which should in turn help in the achievement of the specific goals of the Xavier Way. Goals may be altered, or perhaps even added, as the year progresses and new challenges arise.
This phase essentially runs year-round. It includes the execution of our day-to-day jobs as well as working on specific initiatives or projects that are part of our goals. Frequent communication among all team members will help to keep these efforts on track and avoid any surprises.
