Evaluating and Rewarding Extension Agent Performance

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Evaluating and recognizing the work performed by Extension Agents/Educators can be a complicated and inexact process that leaves both employees and supervisors frustrated and discouraged. However, this level of anxiety can be minimized when expectations are aligned in a succinct format that provides the means to encourage employee success.

Over the past five years, Kentucky has been deliberate in making Extension Agent evaluations more objective and meaningful. The current goal includes linking the mid-year and annual employee review process to a matrix/rubric with descriptive outcomes. The quality of work that is demonstrated at various levels of an agent’s career is also assessed, using a four point agent evaluation scale.

In addition to merit reward through the employee annual review process, Kentucky also has a career ladder in place that outlines specific expectations (of different stages) of professional development and employee performance.

This workshop will focus on a review of both the employee evaluation/review process as well as the career ladder advancement system. The presenters will provide a summary of data from the current year and solicit discussions on how other states motivate Extension professionals to achieve a higher level of quality performance.
