It is the policy of Bellevue College to encourage growth and development of exempt staff by periodical reviews of their progress through performance-based evaluations. Ideally, the performance appraisal cycle will include goal setting, performance evaluation, professional development and performance discussion.


It is the responsibility of supervisors to:

  • consistently guide, counsel, and evaluate their employees in a manner that will result in increased effectiveness and great job satisfaction to the employee.
  • explain the employee’s responsibility for successfully performing assigned job duties and responsibilities;
  • assess how well the employee has contributed to efficiency and effectiveness in fulfilling the objectives of Bellevue College and the position; and
  • recognize an employee’s successful job performance and identify any necessary changes in job performance.

It is the responsibility of the employee to:

  • request clarification of any job duty, standard, or expectation that is unclear;
  • perform work as assigned and meet job standards and expectations;
  • participate in the performance evaluation process; and
  • communicate with supervisor and share successes and problems so the supervisor can better measure progress and provide assistance
