Performance Management

The entire Notre Dame community benefits from the personal and professional growth of each member. It is in this spirit that the University embraces a culture of coaching and a merit based performance review process. Documented conversations and other corrective measures are used when opportunities for growth are recognized and expectations are not being met. 

Performance Management is a process that begins immediately upon hire and continues throughout the full life cycle of employment. The process helps the manager and employee reach a shared understanding of expected behavior and results, encourages mutual feedback about progress, promotes professional development, and links pay to performance in a way that recognizes the right efforts and results. 

The University’s intent is for all employees to receive clear expectations, ongoing feedback, and regular performance conversations. In doing so, the University also strives to help all employees do the very best they are capable of doing, enjoy a high level of job and personal satisfaction, and live the University’s core values every day.
