Emory University uses performance competencies to evaluate employee performance. There are two types of competencies: regular competencies (for managers and non-managers) and leader competencies.


Most Emory University staff members are evaluated on eight performance competencies. These regular competencies are provided for both managers and non-managers.

Leader Competencies

As of FY20, a new competency model will be used for all Emory University staff leaders who have strategy, change management and related leadership oriented responsibilities. This new model more adequately addresses the skills that are needed to be a successful leader at Emory. These competencies are mostly for those who serve in a Director level position or above and who supervise others.
