Achieve Together

What are the benefits of this approach?

The many organizations that have shifted to this performance management approach - including UC Irvine - have had favorable outcomes:

More real-time assessment, adjustment, and alignment of work efforts.

Greater opportunities for conversations about engagement and professional development.

More shared ownership between managers and direct reports about how work is performed.

Better matching work efforts with workplace dynamics.


When did Achieve Together begin at UC Berkeley?

The Achieve Together performance program began in April 2020. Achieve Together is grounded in a coaching culture and includes staff and managers having three formal check-in conversations about performance using six standardized questions. Check-in conversations are documented using an online dashboard tool.
