Goals and Performance

All benefits-eligible staff required to complete performance appraisals will transition to completing their appraisals through SuccessFactors. All areas will move to the same annual performance period. All performance appraisals will be completed/finalized during the month of April. Although this is not a change for some areas that utilize April to complete their appraisals, it is a change for others. Please contact lod@purdue.edu for further questions and guidance.

Student employees and their supervisors will continue to access SEMS (Student Employment Management System – West Lafayette Campus only) to complete appraisals.

Areas have the opportunity to utilize goals management, professional development plans and 360 reviews. The HR – Leadership and Organizational Development (LOD) team have been meeting with leadership across the campuses to review the available tools.
