Performance Management Instrument (PMI)
The State of Wyoming utilizes what's known as the Performance Management Instrument (PMI) to recognize employees throughout the State of Wyoming.
The PMI fosters a culture of communication at all levels within state government. This process utilizes collaboration between supervisors and employees not only to develop and set standards that align with state and agency missions, but also to measure and evaluate performance.
PMI CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT INITIATIVE
Since inception of the current appraisal system in 2011, very few changes have been made to the PMI program. To ensure that the program continues to evolve, representatives from multiple state agencies were brought together to assist the Human Resources Division with assessing key components of the program. This committee comprised of employees, supervisors, administrators, directors, and human resource officers became known as the PMI Continuous Improvement Team.
This committee was divided into three focus groups: 1) Scoring and Design; 2) Administration and Rules; and 3) Training and Communications. The Scoring and Design subgroup's role was to identify current form issues and implement solutions that would expand the use of the system and create more equitable performance measures. The Administration and Rules subgroup's role was to identify current procedural issues and implement solutions that would add clarity to the PMI process through the administration of current rules or the proposal of any rule changes. Lastly, the Training and Communications subgroup's role was to identify current training issues and implement solutions that would enhance training and educate users on any program changes.
Meetings began in January 2018 and are continuing today. Changes, as they are finalized can be seen below:
