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

All Emory University staff leaders who have strategy, change management and related leadership-oriented responsibilities have a different competency model. This 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.
