Have you missed opportunities to engage?
Is the reason you're missing training and development opportunities because there needs to be someone in your office to answer calls, welcome visitors or perform basic office skills?
Requesting a temporary student employee may be the solution.
Students, trained in basic office skills, are available to work for staff employees who would like to attend training and development opportunities.
Staff Advisory Council, Quality of Life Initiative Theme 1- Recommendation 2 - “Work with the PACE Program to train and utilize PACE student workers as office coverage for program assistants and other hourly or essential employees." Rene Jackson, consulted by Executive Vice President Francis, has created a program stable of student workers to support staff members being able to participate in university programs during office hours.
