Manage performance and development like a boss.

We believe performance and development management starts on day 1. To help us maximize our performance management process, we use an online system called Talent Connect, which allows you to set and manage goals that can be updated and tracked throughout the year. It’s also where leaders will capture and summarize their employee’s yearly accomplishments and opportunities.


Use the tabs below to learn about managing performance, setting goals, and all the resources and tools available.

What Leaders Need to Know NOW:

The 2020 Performance Management Forms are available in Talent Connect as of October 8, 2020.

The annual performance management process for all employees should be completed by February 19, 2021. That includes manager rating in all three areas, 1-on-1 performance conversations, and employee acknowledgement) for all employees must be completed by February 19, 2021.

Because of the uniqueness of this year, many teams have not set organizational goals for 2020. Please follow the guidance in the Entering Goals in Talent Connect job aid to set and cascade a simple, generic organizational goal(s) for 2020. If you have already set organizational goals, please rate your employees on those.

Manage performance and development like a boss.
