Development Cycle - Annual Review Year

Staff who have successfully completed the Induction Cycle participate in the Development Cycle. This cycle focuses on developing and supporting the professional knowledge and skills of Agency staff. It also provides for ongoing review of the employee's competence in the Agency's Standards.

Note that staff in this cycle will either be in their Annual Review Year, in which the Professional Development Plan is reviewed and revised in collaboration with their evaluator, OR in their Performance Review Year, in which they have a formal performance review with their evaluator.

The Annual Review Year supports employee professional growth through 1). collaborative development of a Professional Development Plan that is based on the Agency goals and Standards and Criteria; 2). employee implementation of the plan; and 3). employee reflection on the plan’s progress.  At least annually, the plan is reviewed through coaching conversations with the employee’s evaluator.
