Performance Management

Performance Management Process

Creighton embraces a performance-based culture, reflective of our Jesuit values, which calls for the ongoing formation of all individuals. As we move the University forward, all employees deserve the time for self-reflection and honest, constructive feedback related to their job performance. Open dialogue between supervisors and employees and detailed performance documentation are essential to the process.

Value of Performance Reviews

One of the Ignatian values is having a culture of ongoing coaching and formation which calls forth otherís gifts. Every person who works at Creighton, regardless of their role, deserves ongoing feedback and coaching on their efforts. This provides our hard working and dedicated people valuable reinforcement of their strengths and a development plan toward fulfilling the Universityís vision of academic excellence.

To give valuable feedback, start with developing solid goals and objectives and following up with well-written performance documentation for informal discussion throughout the annual performance period culminating with the formal discussion at the end of the performance evaluation period.

Creighton's Performance Evaluation Process creates accountability and fosters a pay for performance culture. The process also encourages input from all employees regarding their performance through the Employee Self-Review.
