Performance management at Sandia is a critical business process. It ensures you – working with your manager – set meaningful and measurable goals and track progress toward your career’s “Eureka!” moments.
The process also encourages an ongoing conversation about performance and development between you and your manager.
Sandia uses a mix of the following criteria to give you a comprehensive picture of your performance against your stated goals.
Your manager uses the 9-Block assessment to evaluate your overall performance for the year, including your results against goals and how you demonstrated the Sandia 8 Behaviors.
Refer to HR Solutions for more details about how this works, and the criteria we use.
The Sandia 8 Behaviors are directly in line with supporting Sandia’s values. Be sure to review the 8 Behaviors through HR Solutions.
When assigning your 9-Block rating at year-end, your manager will consider – and provide written feedback on – how you demonstrated each of the Sandia 8 Behaviors during the performance year using the following categories: always, frequently, sometimes, or rarely.
We start the performance management process with setting goals for the performance year. This helps you and your manager establish expectations and think ahead about how your work will contribute to Sandia’s results and to your team’s contributions.
We encourage you to consider what you’ll focus on, how you’ll work, and where you might stretch, develop, and grow.
Check out managing performance and compensation for support documents, tools, and tips for setting goals, using ePerformance, completing performance assessments, and making annual compensation recommendations.
