To increase transparency and help employees understand what leaders and managers/supervisors use to determine performance levels and merit rewards, UC Berkeley has developed consistent, performance-based Achievement Criteria for non-represented staff. The merit criteria guides provide example behaviors for each performance level (Needs Attention, Well Done, Stand Out). All non-represented employees will use the same Achievement Criteria (with additional performance indicators for people managers). There are five dimensions of the Achievement Criteria which include Collaboration, Goal Accomplishment, Innovation, Inclusion & Belonging, and Job Mastery.

To determine performance levels per criterion (Collaboration, Goal Accomplishment, Inclusion & Belonging, Innovation, and Job Mastery), the manager/supervisor will refer to the feedback provided per guided check-in question on the Achieve Together Check-in form and compare the performance and behavioral indicators for each criterion associated with each performance level (needs attention, well done, stand out), and identify which level aligns closest with the employee’s performance for the year.
