Performance program is a term used in personnel evaluation that refers to a written statement of the scope of work and expectations of performance that constitute the basis for the personnel evaluation. A performance program is thought to encourage open, ongoing communication between the employee and supervisor about performance issues, job-related concerns, and goals. In addition, it is meant to promote effective job performance and provide feedback about past performance. In some cases, the evaluator or supervisor and employee must agree to a performance program.
