Annual staff performance evaluation begins March 6 with ePerformance

The Annual Staff Performance Evaluation process will begin on March 6, 2020. As part of the recent transition to UC Path, we are implementing ePerformance, an electronic process for completing staff evaluations. UC Path ePerformance will replace the PDF-based Employee Performance Evaluation Report (EPAR). This program will provide a more streamlined process for both the employee and the supervisor.

(Please note: ANR staff based at the Office of the President will follow the UCOP-HR performance process with separate trainings, timelines and forms.)

On March 6, all staff employees and their supervisors will receive an email notification that evaluation documents are available in UC Path ePerformance. The email will contain a link to take you directly to the electronic form. You may also locate the form by accessing your Dashboard in UC Path, and selecting Performance Work Center. The UCPath log in page may be found at

In March, Human Resources will host a series of webinars for employees and supervisors. The webinars will provide training on how to use the ePerformance program. If you are a supervisor, you only need to participate in a supervisor session.

Please hold one of these dates/times on your calendar:   

Employee Role: March 5, Thurs., 3 p.m.–4 p.m.              Supervisor Role: March 12, Thurs., 10 a.m.–11:30 a.m.

Employee Role:March 10, Tues., 2 p.m.–3 p.m.              Supervisor Role: March 31, Tues., 10 a.m.–11:30 a.m.

ANR timeline for staff performance appraisals differs from campuses

On March 5, ANR Human Resources launched the 2017-18 Annual Staff Performance Appraisal Process. The UC Davis campus has also announced their annual “call” for staff performance appraisals. Please be aware that ANR has a separate process and timeline. Please do not use the UC Davis online system for submitting Summary of Accomplishments and Employee Performance Appraisals.

It is critical that all units meet the May 14 deadline for submitting proposed overall ratings.

This timeline is subject to change with prior notice:

March 1-23: Employee prepares Summary of Accomplishments. Supervisor option: Employee prepares Self-Assessment using the Performance Appraisal form.

March 23-May 11: Supervisor meets with employee to review Summary of Accomplishments. Supervisor drafts Employee Performance Appraisal. Supervisor confirms agreement on proposed rating with second-level supervisor. 

May 14: Proposed overall ratings and draft appraisals due to ANR Human Resources.

May 14-June 1: HR reviews proposed ratings for consistency, and confirms final ratings.

June 1-July 31: Supervisor meets with employee to communicate overall rating.

If you are uncertain about the process, please reach out to your supervisor or contact Mary Vlandis at (530) 750-1321 or

Forms and more information regarding the ANR process are available on the Staff Human Resources webpage

How about someone to share the workplace culture, safety plans, ANR Collaborative Tools, ANR processes and procedures...and more.? 

If yes, read the ANR Onboarding Buddy Guide and think of sharing this guide with your next onboarding buddy.


Leading and Working in Teams

Organizations thrive or fail to thrive based on how well the teams within those organizations work. If you want to know what it takes to create a high-performing team, complete the course “Leading and Working in Teams”.

Harvard Business School professor Amy Edmonson reveals how high performance arises when teams are encouraged to take risks, fail, and learn from those failures, a process she calls “teaming.” Learn more here


The annual performance appraisal is an opportunity for staff and supervisors to recognize accomplishments, identify opportunities to build skills, and align individual efforts to high-level unit and division goals. Take time in the next month to review and reflect on the past year, and plan your future work with your supervisor.

The staff performance review period runs from April 1, 2017, through March 31, 2018. An annual appraisal should be completed for all ANR staff employees, including represented and non-represented, career and contract employees with at least six months of service as of March 31, 2018.

The recommended first step for the process is for employees to complete a Summary of Accomplishments. This year ANR supervisors have the option to have their staff prepare a self-appraisal in lieu of the summary of accomplishments using the 2017-18 Employee Performance Appraisal Form.
