Effective communication and feedback about performance are critical to your success as an employee and to the success of the University overall. NYU's performance communication process ensures an ongoing dialogue between you and your manager or supervisor that:

  • Creates a shared understanding of goals, competencies, and other expectations that are critical for success
  • Fosters an environment of continuous feedback and professional development
  • Provides you with the opportunity to assess your own performance
  • Helps you improve what you do and how you do it, thus enabling you to provide greater support to the goals of your school or unit and the University

Below, access forms and information about the University-wide performance communication process, SPEAK (Success: Performance, Engagement, Alignment, and Knowledge). Note that your school or unit may use a slightly different process; check with your HR Officer or Business Partner regarding your process locally.
