New Performance Management Process
Welcome to Creighton University's Performance Review System.
Starting in 2014, all staff performance review and self- assessment forms will be completed and processed online through this site. No more paper forms. This site provides managers with real-time information on the completion status of these forms and creates greater efficiencies for the University, in accordance with Creighton’s strategic priorities.
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.
We ask that employees complete the self-reflection assessment by the end of June, and that managers schedule performance evaluations between June and July. Completed performance reviews are due August 1, and the salary merit effective date is October 1.
If you have any questions about the new website, please contact the Creighton Human Resources department at 402-280-2709 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Creighton's Performance Management Process was developed by the Performance Management Working Group. This working group consists of faculty, staff and administration from various departments, divisions and schools within Creighton University.
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 Assessment form.
Faculty/Staff Performance Review Cycle
As Creighton University fosters a performance-based culture, it is important to integrate mission as a key component in the performance review process. One of the Ignatian values is having a culture of ongoing coaching and formation which calls forth other’s 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 University’s vision of academic excellence.
It is important and necessary to provide people with honest feedback on how well they perform all of their assigned responsibilities. This is accomplished by 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.
Based on the new salary merit effective date of October 1st, the following outlines the performance period and review dates for this year:
Review period: July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014
Performance Review Preparation period: June 15 - July 31, 2014
Performance Review communication to staff : Anytime from July 1 to July 31, 2014
Completed performance reviews submitted to Human Resources: Due August 1, 2014
Due to our diverse and comprehensive mix of schools and colleges, each school will determine what the most appropriate performance review cycle works best for their faculty. Please note the salary merit effective date for faculty and staff at Creighton will be October 1.
Late spring and early summer, the Human Resources team will be sponsoring educational and information sessions for managers and employees on how to best develop, conduct, participate and overall manage an effective performance review.
