LCC has made continuous strides to improve the performance review process for all employees. Most recently, the college moved performance reviews for probationary and post-probationary support employees to the Talent Management System (TMS). It is noteworthy that faculty and administrator performance reviews were previously placed in TMS. The online forms are easy to use and have many advantages over the old paper forms, including:
- No paper to keep track of or pass from person to person.
- The TMS keeps track of when reviews should be assigned and does so automatically.
- Once completed, the document is archived where it can be easily reviewed by those with authorization.
- Reporting allows better tracking of the process.
Support staff performance reviews will automatically assign in accordance with applicable provisions of College Collective Bargaining Agreements and policies. When a task assigns, an email will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org indicating that a performance review task has been assigned to complete.
Once logged into the TMS, the task will appear on the Welcome Page, under “My Tasks.”
- the LCC Help Desk at x5221 regarding technical issues.
- the Labor Relations and Organizational Development Staff at x1879 regarding TMS process issues.
