STRENGTHEN PRIDE AND INVOLVEMENT
Initiative: Provide chairs of search committees with training in how to conduct a search.
Achievements of the past year:
The Department of Human Resources Management provides search committee training upon request. On-line resources are available in the employment related toolkits on the HRM website. HRM staff have served on one search committee and provided training to approximately nine committees during calendar year 2007.
Goals for the next year:
- HRM will create an "on boarding" program utilizing technology and best practices to make new employees feel welcome and comfortable in their new work environment and minimize the time before new employees are productive members of their new work groups.
- HRM will align processes to improve efficiency, effectiveness, and service by defining the employment process, developing flow charts, reviewing the process map with key stake holders, modifying processes and resources.
Constraints to full implementation of this initiative:
Support from administrators at all levels will be critical to the implementation and success of the on boarding program and employment process improvements.
