Melanie Williams with basket of prizes for winning Slice 2015 style guide contest

The winner is….

Congratulation to Melanie Williams, Payroll Technician for Student Life Budget and Planning. She was the winner of the What’s Wrong style guide quiz in the last issue of Slice. She wasn’t the first to respond, but she was the first to identify all of the errors. She was fast, too. Slice went out at 7:59 a.m. and she answered at 8:12.

Thanks to everyone who participated. Maybe we’ll do another contest some time.

Fall doesn’t just mean the return of students and football. It’s performance planning time. Managers and employees collaborate to review core duties, establish goals and discuss the university values. Make sure you actively participate in planning what you will accomplish for the 2015-2016 year. Watch this one-minute video.

Speaking of performance management…

Managers can now add 2015-2016 goals for each employee in the performance management system.

Managers who have not participated in Student Life’s training on the performance management process are invited to attend in September. Come learn Student Life’s practice and your responsibilities in performance planning, coaching, and evaluation. Sign up online.
