For Area/Division Leaders: PMP Ratings Calibration Best Practices

Fairness in the performance management process is critical for ensuring employees receive a performance evaluation that is equitable and supports job and career development goals. To this end, performance assessors are encouraged to exchange information relating to their performance rating assignments, especially for similar jobs and/or job levels. These calibration meetings should promote more consistent messaging and transparency to the review process.
