Staff Performance Evaluations: Self-Assessment

Ashley Zingo, Director of Operations

The Performance Management Process ensures expectations are clear and prioritized, encourages professional development and growth, provides an opportunity for recognition, and is a time for reflection. We ask each employee to complete their self-assessment in Endeavor and participate in performance discussions with their supervisors. We are asking each employee to kick off this process by submitting their self-assessment by Monday, April 1, 2024.
