MPP Evaluation Process

Creating Dialogue through the Evaluation Process

In May, Human Resources introduced the new and improved MPP Evaluation Process and MPP Evaluation Form to promote the ongoing dialogue about work performance and goals. The presentation gives MPPs the tools needed to initiate and maintain ongoing workplace dialogue from establishing expectations, providing and engaging in feedback, to actively evaluating performance.

The Human Resources Leadership Team has received positive reviews and feedback from the four training sessions offered in August. This is a great opportunity for the SJSU management team to have cross-departmental conversations. Two more training sessions  are scheduled on September 3 and September 20. Thereafter, sessions will be offered quarterly.

For more information, contact Tina Camba.

Step Beyond: Customer Service Training Coming Soon

In the spirit of the Vision 2017 goal of Helping and Caring, and in response to campus-wide requests, HR is developing customer service training. Look for Step Beyond: SJSU Customer Service Training to be rolled out in the coming weeks. Step Beyond will cover the components of quality customer service and will give attendees an opportunity to step out of their own shoes and into those of the customer. The major theme of the training is going a "step beyond" to create a culture of helping and caring on campus.

HR will be offering Step Beyond: SJSU Customer Service Training as an open HR101 class throughout the year. We will also go to departments to facilitate trainings upon request. For more information, contact Julie Inouye Wong.
