Performance Management


The mission of Vermont State Government is to provide essential services to Vermont citizens. Meeting this commitment requires that each state employee performs his or her job as effectively as possible. To this end, a supervisor’s most fundamental responsibilities are the planning, observation, evaluation, and development of employee job performance.

Performance management is an effective supervisory tool that can enhance the productivity and motivation of employees. Clear job responsibilities and expectations are established in relation to organizational goals and objectives. Continuous feedback is provided to improve communication between employees and supervisors. Formal performance reviews document and evaluate performance in relation to established expectations.

The Guide to Performance Management is available to assist supervisors and managers with performance management.
