Performance Management Process

The Performance Management Process is one of the most important interactions between supervisors and employees. It assists in establishing mutual understandings of the responsibilities and the performance expectations associated with a position.  It also provides a mechanism for employees to contribute to the achievement of Amherst College’s strategic goals and vision.

We have created a step-by-step guide with information and tools to help you prepare for your performance review.  Please follow the links below for the Performance Management Process Guide, as well as for the Performance Evaluation Form, the Self Evaluation Form, and the Job Description.

Do not hesitate to contact the Office of Human Resources with any questions you may have about the Performance Management Process.

When opening the pdf files in your browser, if you have any problems working with the form, please review these instructions from IT to resolve any technical problems that might be related to the internet browser you are using. The document reader in Firefox does not open the text boxes in the forms; you will have to open the files in Adobe when prompted.

If you want to learn more about these forms, please consider attending one of the Performance Evaluation Information Sessions scheduled during the end of March and early April.
