Campus-wide - ePerformance Launch

To: UCSC Staff Employees

From: Staff Human Resources

The UCPath staff performance appraisal management tool, ePerformance, will be rolling out to the campus in April 2020. This module will replace the previous appraisal tool ( with a secure, online evaluation platform through UCPath.

What’s Changing with ePerformance

ePerformance differs from the previous appraisal tool in a few ways that will make the creation of appraisals easier than before:
  • Annual performance evaluations can be created in large batches, rather than one-by-one
  • There is no need to manually set up signature hierarchies, as these are automatically generated in ePerformance
Additionally, supervisors can track their employee’s performance throughout the appraisal period with Performance Notes. Both supervisors and employees can also now nominate colleagues to participate in an employee’s annual performance evaluation
