Launch of the 2019 Performance Assessment Process for Research Associates (Limited Term) / Senior Research Associates

Date: May 15, 2019
To: Research Associates & Senior Research Associates
From: Barb Movrin, Director, Compensation, Division of HR & Equity

Further to Chief Human Resources Officer Erin Jackson’s message on April 10, 2019, I am now writing to inform you that the annual Performance Assessment Process for Research Associates / Senior Research Associates (RA / SRA) will begin on May 16, 2019.

Some of you may have received erroneous messages from the Halogen system last week as a result of a system glitch. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused. The error has been addressed and the application is now ready for use.

Timelines for this year’s process can be found on the HR & Equity website. Please review the details for your process carefully to ensure that you understand what information and actions are required.

The Activity Report component for RA / SRA members is due to their reviewer by May 29. There are also multiple checkpoints and action items that employees and managers must complete from now through to July.

Please be reminded that the University expects that most employees should receive a High-Quality Performance rating, where work is of high quality in all significant areas of responsibility. The exceptional performance ratings are intended to recognize staff who have served in an above-and-beyond capacity, and have achieved significant accomplishments in relation to their divisional and individual goals throughout the past year.

If you have any further questions about the 2019 Performance Assessment Process, please contact your Divisional Human Resources Office.
