Good news, State of Arizona employees!
This year all Arizona State Personnel System agencies will begin adopting a new, improved performance management system called AZPerforms! This system will replace the Managing for Accountability and Performance (MAP) appraisal system that has been in place since 2013.
AZPerforms! offers many benefits for employees and managers alike. These include:
- A simple, intuitive, easy to use Web-based platform that is scalable to any agency’s size
- Managers will have more discretion in evaluating employee performance using a 5-point rating scale in 0.5 increments measuring Results and Behaviors aligned with the State’s Core Beliefs and Values
- A year-long performance management process tied to employee development and ongoing coaching with performance documentation
The statewide one-on-one coaching methodology that management uses to encourage and support employee development and continuous improvement is embedded in the AZPerforms! platform - another huge plus for employee career advancement.
Agencies will decide the timing of transitioning the new appraisal platform within the next 12-18 months and you can expect additional information from your HR teams, including training and instructions for completing the new, simplified appraisal forms.
