The Purpose of PATH

W&L's PATH is intended to be a developmentally-focused collaboration between employees and their manager. The purpose of this process is to:

  • Prompt employees to articulate work-related aspirations for the year and prioritize aspects of their work
  • Provide built-in opportunities for employees to evaluate their own performance, articulate strengths, and receive feedback about performance
  • Provide defined opportunities for supervisors to consider performance broadly, offer praise, constructive feedback, and learn about their employees' development interests
  • Offer employees a safe and constructive place/time to learn where their skills and capacities can improve and/or grow
  • Guide employees towards their greatest potential and job satisfaction
