Wittenberg University expects supervisors to communicate regularly with their staff about their work performance. The university believes that regular work performance discussions are productive for both the university and its employees. Many minor performance problems can be corrected if dealt with quickly and directly. To achieve desired work performance, employees must understand the expectations that you have as their supervisor.
Setting aside uninterrupted time to meet with staff is a good way to ensure ongoing communication. You are encouraged to hold regular staff meetings that include both administrative and hourly staff. All people benefit by participating in decisions that affect them and by understanding how their work relates to the bigger picture. Also, one important supervisory responsibility is to provide regular informal feedback to staff so that they will better understand expectations and workplace standards and to participate fully in the university’s formal performance management system.
