PM Step 2: Mid-Year Conversations

Supervisors should begin conducting mid-year conversations with their professional staff team members (administrative employees) for the 2023-24 performance management cycle.  

Mid-year conversations are a wonderful opportunity to check in on goal progress and assess if any modifications are needed. They are also a valuable coaching, growth and development opportunity for supervisors and employees. 

While mid-year conversations and performance evaluations are required for professional staff members, all employees are encouraged to engage in mid-year check-ins, and related tools and resources are helpful for all University roles. 

Mid-year conversations must be completed by Dec. 22, 2023.

Complete mid-year conversations

  • Supervisors should schedule mid-year conversation meetings with direct reports. 
    • Using regularly scheduled 1-on-1 meetings is encouraged to host these conversations. 
  • The Stay Conversation Guide is a helpful mid-year conversation resource that can assist with these conversations. 
  • An optional Check-In feature within Workday can be used to record mid-year conversation notes. 
  • Supervisors and staff members are encouraged to review the core leadership competencies piloted in the 2022-23 evaluation review. 
    • To view competencies in Workday: 
      • View your employee profile (icon located at the top right).  
      • Select “Performance” from the profile screen. 
      • Select “Competencies” tab.
