Performance management

Performance management is an ongoing process shaped by expectation and goal setting, regular conversations between managers and their employees, documenting contributions, and rewarding achievements – all to support continuous growth and development.

Staff performance management

At USC, we have a robust staff performance management program, including four stages: planning, coaching, evaluating, and rewarding.

For staff in administrative units:
Learn about the performance cycle and find tools, resources, and trainings on the Staff Performance Management site (USC log-in required).

For staff in schools or at Keck Medicine of USC:
Reach out to your HR Contact for guidance on your performance management process.

Refer to USC’s Performance Evaluations Policy for further information.
