Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Performance development

Full Time Continuing Employees

The performance development cycle includes the collaborative stages involved in the process of planning, monitoring, and reviewing performance. The process is centred on setting goals that are aligned with the strategic objectives of the organization.

Performance development conversations are an opportunity for employees and managers to step back from day-to-day tasks and duties to examine and discuss past accomplishments and set clear goals for the future.  As performance relates to ‘ SMARTER goals’, we take the time to evaluate how we’ve achieved the objectives we established for ourselves.  It’s an opportunity to understand how to improve, celebrate what’s been accomplished, and think about how we can develop professionally in future. 

If you are a manager and you would like someone to visit your team and provide additional training or performance development programming support, contact  performance@ontariotechu.ca with your request. 

  • Performance development Cycle for Limited-Term Employees

    Performance Development for Limited-Term employees is not mandatory.  Many employees and managers enjoy having a process to follow and forms to use to guide discussions about professional development.  The following forms have been developed to assist with performance development discussions with limited-term staff. The forms are intended to support staff and managers in rich dialogue about the past year’s successes and to identify where processes can be streamlined in an effort toward continuous improvement.

    The forms as a discussion tool provide an excellent opportunity for managers to recognize the achievements and impacts of the work performed by their employees.
