Some managers and employees will be working on mid-cycle and probationary performance reviews in Carolina Talent next month. The Office of Human Resources is syncing up SHRA and EHRA review periods. For EHRA employees, that means the 2021-2022 performance period is shortened to July 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022. Going forward, performance periods will be April 1 through March 31 of the following year for all EHRA Non-Faculty and SHRA employees. Mid-cycle and probationary reviews affect:
- any employee (and their manager) who received a “Not Meeting Expectations” in the last performance year and,
- SHRA employees (and their managers) in their probationary period. Probationary reviews need to be completed during each quarter during the months of April, July, October, and January.
All documentation for mid-cycle and probationary reviews is completed in Carolina Talent Performance. You can find the Carolina Talent Performance tile on your ConnectCarolina Self Service home page.
I. If you are an affected employee, you will receive an email from Carolina Talent to let you know you can complete an optional self-assessment prior to meeting with your manager. You can complete your self-assessment between October 1 and October 15. Your manager receives a task message (email) from Carolina Talent when you submit your self-assessment.
II. Managers log in to Carolina Talent Performance to complete the online documentation for the mid-cycle or probationary review by October 31. Note: Managers can begin the review sooner if the employee completes the optional self-assessment.
III. You and your manager meet to discuss the review. Afterward, your manager can make final changes and then submit the review in Carolina Talent Performance. After the review is officially submitted, the employee has 15 days to acknowledge the review.
HR Reps should be on the lookout for an email from the Office of Human Resources to let them know about the process. Employees and managers will get automatic emails from Carolina Talent when a task is available for them.
Updated step-by-step guides will be available in Carolina Talent and managers can find additional information on the Carolina Talent Performance Evaluation Policies web page.
