Assessment and Coordination of Current Programs

The Office of Human Resources, in partnership with appropriate representatives across campus, should:

  • Conduct an all-campus needs assessment to determine the types of orientation, training, and professional development needs and interests of our employees;
  • Conduct an inventory of existing programs: Are they open to all or just a discrete group? How often are they offered? How successful are they? Could they be expanded to include more participants? Should they be offered more frequently, or be replicated elsewhere on campus?
  • Determine the skills that are required in certain positions and make sure that training is provided for individuals assuming those roles. Specifically, we recommend a suite of management training courses geared towards new managers, and refresher courses for more experienced managers;
  • Determine what should be offered centrally versus within divisions or departments.
