Employee resources and state workforce

The Performance Accountability and Feedback workstream is part of the Oregon Management project, with the goal to empower managers with the right tools and training to produce outcomes, provide support, assess performance and provide feedback to the staff they manage, according to our statewide values and competencies.

​Managers will receive training on the performance accountability and feedback model, learn how to provide feedback, develop clear expectations and measurements, provide coaching and conduct the quarterly check-ins.
