FY 2024 Pilot Employee Performance Management Program
In 2020, the Office of Human Resources Management (OHRM) surveyed Employees about their experiences with the current Past Performance Appraisal Process. Acting on Employee feedback and recommendations, OHRM launched the first year Employee Performance Pilot Program on July 1, 2022, for a more efficient, collaborative, and employee-focused process to:
- Set clear goals for performance;
- Provide continuous feedback to support growth; and
- Equitably assess and recognize every employee’s impact
The FY 2023 pilot program outlined under Administrative Procedure (AP) 217-A applies to County general schedule employees in the Executive Branch. All other employees will continue under the current Past Performance Appraisal Process outlined under AP 217 (listed on the County Intranet). FY 2024 will continue under the directives of the AP 217-A policy.
OHRM plans to use this pilot program to inform its approach for enhancing the Countywide performance management process.
