Performance Management

On Tuesday, September 8, 2020, Steinhardt will be moving our Performance Management process to Online Rating-less Reviews in PeopleSync. Employees will receive an email and an item in their PeopleSync inbox, which will open up the new online goal setting form. This new form will make the process faster and easier to complete.

Managers are expected to meet with employees first and discuss goals for the upcoming year. Following these meetings, employees will then be able to enter their goals in PeopleSync for Manager approval. The goal setting form will be available in the system until October 30, 2020, after which the system will automatically finalize any goals that are still in draft form. System automated reminder alerts for goal setting will be sent on or around September 21st and October 20th, in preparation for the goal setting close on October 30th. 

For a training resource on writing effective goals, please search iLearn for course PRO: 402 Performance Communication at NYU. For help navigating the system to enter goals, please refer to the Performance Review: Goal Setting tipsheet, which provides step-by-step instructions. If you or your team members encounter any issues with the system, please send an email describing your issue to and please include a screenshot if possible.

Lastly, I will be working to set up a Webinar session in the coming weeks to review this process and answer any questions you may have. The full performance year timeline, including the Mid-Year Performance Review and the Year End Performance Review, will be posted in the coming weeks.
