Completing a Self-Review

Self-reviews give you the opportunity to reflect on your progress and performance and share your thoughts with your manager.
You will receive an email when your manager or administrator wants you to complete a self-review. Your self-review will also be available from Staff™ --> My Reviews.

Here's how to access your self-review from the email:

  1. Select Log in to PurelyHR
  2. Sign in to PurelyHR
  3. Go to the Staff module
  4. Select My Reviews from the lefthand menu

This screen will list both current and past reviews. Next to the review you would like to fill out, select the Edit (pencil) icon to start the review.

Filling Out your Self-Review

Self-reviews are comprised of a questionnaire and a number of optional sections. Depending on your account settings, you may only see the mandatory Introduction, Questionnaire, and Conclusion.

Here is a complete list of sections that can be included in a self-review:


Introduces you to the self-review process. The review's due date is confirmed on this screen. To begin the review, select Save & Continue

You have the option to provide a comment on your overall progress. Your next review date will also display here. When you're done, select Finalize. Note: Once you finalize your review, you can no longer make changes.

An email will be sent to your manager letting them know you have completed your self-review. They will then have the opportunity to review and provide comments on each section you just completed.


If the review requires your signature, you will receive an email once your manager has finished reviewing your self-review.

  3. From the review Summary page, select the red pencil icon underneath Employee Signature
  4. Enter your name and click Save

You have now completed your self-review!
