New Performance Management Process

Welcome to Creighton University's Performance Management System.

All staff performance review and self- assessment forms will be completed and processed online through the new online system. 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.

If you have any questions about the new website, please contact the Creighton Human Resources department at 402-280-2709 or

Performance Level Key

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.
