Supervisors and employees are strongly encouraged to discuss job performance and goals on an informal, day-to-day basis. Formal performance evaluations are conducted at the end of an employee’s Introductory Period in any new position. This period allows the supervisor and the employee to discuss the job responsibilities, standards, and performance requirements of the new position. Additional formal performance evaluations are conducted to provide both supervisors and employees the opportunity to discuss job tasks, identify and correct weaknesses, encourage and recognize strengths, and discuss positive, purposeful approaches for meeting goals.
Performance evaluations are scheduled approximately every 12 months, coinciding generally with the anniversary of the employee’s original date of hire. A newly hired employee will have a performance review at the end of their Introductory Period, at 6 months and then 12 months from approximate date of hire. After the first full year of employment, the employee will then have a performance review every 12 months.
Merit-based pay adjustments are awarded by Imua Physical Therapy in an effort to recognize truly superior employee performance. The decision to award such an adjustment is dependent upon numerous factors, including the information documented by this formal performance evaluation process.
