Get FOCUSed with Yale's New Performance Management System

What is FOCUS?

Focus is Yale's performance management system. It stands for Feedback and Ongoing Coaching for University Success.

Feedback and ongoing coaching benefit individuals, departments, and the University in a variety of ways by:

Improving communication between supervisors and employees

Facilitating the development of clear expectations and performance standards

Providing feedback to staff about how they have performed

Focusing employees on their development efforts.


These benefits lead to a deepened commitment from staff to organizational goals and are an excellent way for employees to feel better about their jobs and careers. Getting FOCUSed helps individuals meet their own goals as well as common goals more effectively.
