Performance Plan

First 30 days

A performance plan helps provide a roadmap for employee success. It is the supervisor’s responsibility to establish a performance plan for each employee within 30 days of appointment and each year thereafter.

Designed to provide the employee with a clear understanding of the responsibilities of the position, the performance plan details position expectations. These expectations are based on the needs of the department and the duties listed in the position description. It is developed by the supervisor and reviewed with the employee.

Performance Evaluation 

After 12 Months

The written evaluation is a summary of the employee’s performance over the preceding 12 months, including achievements, training and recurring issues. It is also a segue to evaluating an employee's future and, if applicable, next year's performance plan.


A counseling session is a discussion between a supervisor and an employee about those aspects of an employee's performance or conduct where improvement is needed. This communication should be conducted in private soon after the incident occurs, and is intended to help the employee to correct performance. The session should address concerns and discuss potential solutions, agree on a corrective action, and identify a time to follow up on progress. The goal of counseling is to help the employee to improve performance
