CPAG & PAG Performance Appraisal

The annual Performance Appraisal process is integral to Laurier's success as it provides managers and employees with a shared understanding of what is required (through work and development goals) and how success can be achieved.

Appraisals typically take place around June/July, and assess the performance year from July 1st to June 30th.† The performance appraisal process applies†to staff in†the Confidential (CPAG) and Professional (PAG) Administrative Groups.

The Performance Appraisal Form for†CPAG & PAG†Staff can be found here:†CPAG & PAG Performance Appraisal Form
