The Performance Assessment Review (PAR) is designed to help managers and supervisors communicate with employees about their performance, monitor job satisfaction, and plan employee development. In it, an employee executes an annual performance agreement, with reviews after six months and at the end of the rating year. The agreements and reviews link employee performance with agency objectives and encourage employee development planning.
The PAR program provides several different performance measurements designed to meet agency and employee needs. The Civil Service Commission is developing an electronic PAR (ePAR) that will allow employees, supervisors and managers to easily access, update and track performance standards and measurements as needed. The new PAR is being gradually phased in for State agencies. Please consult your agency's HR department if you need guidance on executing or completing a PAR.
