Notes from HR

  • Gathering is Dec, 12 at 10AM. SAC reps should arrive at 9:45. Will act as greeters and ushers.
  • Invitation will go out today for a management training program.
  • Wholesalers have offered to come to campus and offer discounts for new memberships (Costco, BJs, possibly Sam’s). Rose will be the point of contact.
  • Smoke-free campus. Rose asked that members of SAC research this issue (How are other institutions handling this?). - Deb, Linda, Jacqui, Christie volunteered.
  • Jacqui asked about the College bringing out a nutritionist… the email makes it seem like a College benefit, but in reality it is through insurance.
  • HR strongly suggested that supervisors have performance reviews for staff. Cut off was August 15th, 2013. 89-90% participation in performance evaluations.
  • SAC asked: How does participation affect the staff members annual increase? - It is separate from the increase recommendation, however that does not mean that one does not affect the other.
  • Invitation for talent management focus group will go out in January to discuss performance evaluations.
  • Sharmaine mentioned that in November the Department of Education visited the campus. There may or may not be additional meetings like this.
