The following discussion took place at the October 25, 2017 meeting of the Human Resource Services Planning Council:
• Purpose of the HRS Planning Council
Members shared their expectations for the purpose of the HRS Planning Council; its function beyond sharing information. There was an open discussion regarding the responsibilities of the Council, and members were asked to take time before the next meeting to think carefully about future goals that will improve the institution as a whole.
• Staffing Plan
A draft of the Staffing Plan was created last year and presented at SPC. An overview of the (draft) Plan will be shared with HRSPC members at an upcoming meeting. Dr. Norman explained work is being done to expedite the hiring process for the new centers, including an internal transfer process. The intent is to have all the newly hired employees approved at the May Governing Board meeting.
• Employee Recognition Programs
There was a brief discussion regarding planning for future employee recognition events. The group talked about possibly having one event for AA, CAST, and Classified staff members to make it more of a District-wide recognition program for all groups. Some employees may be interested in other options besides receiving a service pin for their years of service.
