Performance Evaluation Process

Performance Excellence, Northwestern's annual performance review process, is the program for annual staff performance reviews. While it helps you accomplish your goals, it also encourages leaders and their teams to set priorities for what needs to be accomplished and how things need to be done. This results in greater workplace effectiveness, efficiency, and engagement.

All new staff are expected to set objectives using the Performance Excellence Annual Plan form within the first two months of work.

To access the Performance Excellence online tool go to myHR Self Service and select the Learning and Performance tile.

For any questions regarding Performance Excellence visit the PE FAQ webpage.
