Performance Management

Boise State University’s Performance Management Program is a mechanism for creating and maintaining ongoing communication between the supervisor and the employees.  The system focuses on helping the employee achieve their best workplace performance.  It is an expectation that employee performance will align with the University’s Shared Values and Standards of Conduct.

Problem Solving

The Problem-Solving Process is a mechanism to deal with non-disciplinary matters (job related issues other than those defined as disciplinary or those alleging illegal discrimination or harassment). This process requires an employee to meet with his or her immediate supervisor to resolve the matter; file for problem solving if the matter is not resolved; meet with upper-level management; and receive a final decision from the Provost, applicable Vice President, or the President.

Workplace Concerns

Boise State University’s administration encourages professional employees to utilize approved procedures for resolution to problems, issues or concerns.
