New FY 07/08 FOCUS Form Available

University objectives for FY07 include that all M&P staff receive written performance feedback and have written goals for FY 07/08.  Since the 2005 introduction of FOCUS, Yale’s performance management program, feedback and suggestions for improvement have been received and the FOCUS form has been modified to incorporate many of these recommendations. 

Beginning in FY07/08 the university will move to one uniform performance review form for all employees.  This will allow for greater consistency in performance management at Yale.  The new, recommended form, along with the original FOCUS forms, can be found at   While use of the new form is recommended, this year you may use any of the FOCUS forms, or a department designed form. 

To support you and your staff in the performance feedback process, there are several classes available at the Learning Center called “FOCUS: Goal Setting and Feedback.”  A training schedule can be found at

If you need assistance in any of these areas, call your HR Generalist or The Learning Center at 432-5660.
