City of Masvingo Managers, employees meet for performance contracts signing
The City of Masvingo’s managers met with their direct subordinates to sign their 2022 their performance contracts. The process allows both the employee and the supervisor to freely discuss and agree on planned accomplishments for the year. This also aids to complete a new work plan and prepare goals for the new performance cycle.
The performance cycle, with ratings and key targets for employees start beginning of the year and get to be reviewed year end. The performance review should; recognize accomplishments and/or identify developmental needs; promote greater understanding of current and/or vision (Council), as well as the employees’ specific role in facilitating achievement of these objectives; and discuss skills development/enhancement opportunities to encourage continuous learning and to enable career growth.
On annual appraisal supervisors consider each Council and individual goal to determine overall rating. Comments should support ratings for performance that does not meet, meets and/or exceeds expectations. Employees who received disciplinary actions during the performance cycle and/or who have any rating of “Not Meeting Expectations” cannot receive overall rating of ‘Exceeding Expectations’. The second-level supervisor of the employee is required to review and sign the annual appraisal before they are issued to the employee.
The program dovetails with the government’s vision 2030 and National Development Strategy 1 of becoming a world class economy by 2030, hence the need for Council employees to perform so that the City becomes an industrialised world class metropolitan city by 2030.
What is measured gets done.
