Cornerstone Performance Management

Introducing Cornerstone Performance Management

In early September 2023, Michigan Medicine officially started the process of retiring it's legacy (form-based) annual Performance Valuation in favor of a new online system, as a new "Performance Management" feature has been added to the Cornerstone Talent Management platform – joining Cornerstone Learning.

A phased rollout will allow Michigan Medicine to expand and explore other performance-related features in Cornerstone. During the first phase (remainder of 2023), annual employee goal-setting will be the main focus. Early next year, Michigan Medicine Human Resources will be sharing information about how staff and managers can create, approve, and submit annual performance evaluations.

The effort to launch Cornerstone Performance Management is a result of successful collaboration between Michigan Medicine Human Resources, Organizational Development, and a variety of HITS teams, led by Workforce Applications, and including Learning Design and Delivery.
