Talent Development Project
A Message from Mike Rounds, Associate Vice Provost and Ola Faucher, Director
Goal 5 of KU’s strategic plan, Bold Aspirations, stipulates that “Developing Excellence in People” is a key to the long term success of the university. At KU, people are our most valuable resource. Because we are all part of a people-intensive organization, developing our workforce is imperative. Central to KU’s commitment to that development is the implementation of a new talent development system. One component of our new talent development framework is a performance module that includes an intuitive performance appraisal tool. University leaders will leverage the new performance appraisal tool as they engage their employees in an on-going dialogue about their performance. In addition to setting performance goals and providing support to meet those goals, supervisors will identify areas for personal and professional growth of their employees. In tandem with the performance module, the learning management module of the talent development t system will provide easy access to campus learning and development opportunities. The learning management module gives supervisors the right tool to promote the growth of their employees.
In combination, the performance management and learning management modules of our new talent development system provide KU leaders a dynamic resource to engage and grow our workforce. In order to provide you access to this resource, the Human Resource Management team will provide system training across campus.
