Employment Services is committed to developing a staff workforce that maintains the high standards of Macalester College. Below please find a list of resources to assist you in successfully leading your staff.

Staff Performance Reviews

Staff performance reviews are conducted each spring with a deadline for completion of May 1 each year. A review is considered complete when it has been delivered and discussed with the employee, signed by both the employee and supervisor, and turned into Employment Services. Performance reviews are not required for any staff members hired or promoted to a new position on or after December 1st of the previous year. However, supervisors are encouraged to conduct performance reviews with all employees they supervise. For additional information on staff performance review, please contact Employment Services at 651-696-6280 or .
