Mount Holyoke College is committed to educating a diverse community of women at the highest level of academic excellence and to fostering the alliance of liberal arts education with purposeful engagement in the world. All employees are expected to support and contribute to the central elements of the College’s mission. Mount Holyoke College’s Performance Management Program is intended to help employees recognize their own potential contribution to the College, participate in continuous feedback and support, and remain flexible to accommodate situational changes.
Every aspect of the Performance Management Program is intended to facilitate communication between supervisor and employee.
In order for this Program to be effective, all supervisors and employees will receive training. Employees need to understand the Performance Management Program and the expectations of their own jobs to improve their performance; supervisors need to learn how to improve their coaching and motivating skills. All members of the Mount Holyoke College community need to learn how to give and receive feedback effectively.
