Performance management

Performance management is an everyday process where regular coaching discussions provide ongoing opportunities for employee growth and development. We strongly encourage managers and employees to remember that the performance management cycle is a yearlong opportunity to give and receive performance feedback.

Four different performance management training curricula are available in TrojanLearn, providing USC managers with skills in goal setting, development planning, coaching and feedback, and performance evaluations.

  1. Log in to TrojanLearn ( using your USC NetID
  2. Click on the Performance Management link under Learning Pathways and register for training

Also see our handy tip sheet for completing your staff’s performance evaluations.

Additional help for performance management is available on the Workday Help site.

A quick note – since performance management is tied to the job description, you should schedule time to regularly review each of your employees’ job descriptions. Sometimes as a team shifts and grows, job duties no longer match the official job description; it’s crucial that these be kept current and aligned with the actual job duties. Consult your HR Partner for help.
