Performance Management

Performance Management connects State employees to the mission of their agency, and helps them to be successful public servants.  In the State, performance management begins with a personal performance plan, goals and metrics which align with the agency’s strategic plan, followed by on-going one-on-one (1:1) coaching.  Coaching helps to: increase productivity; maintain alignment on work and professional goals; enable quick course corrections, when needed; develop the employee’s problem solving skills, and build relationships based upon trust.

Performance management culminates with a formal, transparent and collaborative annual appraisal which evaluates the employees performance and behaviors in relation to their goals.  

Aside from being the right thing to do, performance management is required by the Arizona State Personnel System (ASPS) Rules – click here for more information.  Doing the right thing the right way is also important – click here to read and follow the ASPS Performance Appraisal Administrative Guidelines.

In the spirit of continuous improvement, the State Human Resources Division (HRD) is transitioning agencies from the Managing Accountability & Performance (MAP) legacy system, to the new AZPerforms! (AZP) Platform.  Click the Learn More buttons below for more information on 1:1 Coaching and to discover the commonalities and differences between each appraisal system.
