Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
PeopleAdmin, the leading provider of on-demand talent management solutions for higher education and government, will host a webcast with Janelle Crowley, Chief Human Resources Officer of Elgin Community College, entitled Performance Management in Higher Education – Creating Consistency in Institutional Alignment. Ms. Crowley will provide details on her institution’s performance management process, employee development and ideas for alignment of measures among faculty and staff at Elgin Community College, the third largest community college in the state of Illinois.
Managing employee performance is creating quite a buzz in higher education lately, particularly on strategies for talent management and its impact on employee and faculty populations in colleges and universities globally. Why? Like any other industry, educational institutions can’t be immune to evaluating and developing employee behaviors that support the goals and missions of the organization. So, it’s no wonder learning institutions, those that teach students and create leaders, are looking internally to ensure their employee performance is “making the grade”.
Leaders in higher education are beginning to put together performance management strategies that include both faculty and staff as well as looking for ways to automate the entire process with the institution’s mission and business goals squarely in their sights.
This session will examine the state of performance management in higher education and address the unique challenges of evaluating tenured faculty as well as evaluating the performance of the institution’s workforce as a whole.
In this webcast, you will learn:
- The importance of aligning individual faculty and staff performance goals with the universities’ business objectives
- How to set consistent goals in a multi-department environment, addressing external influences (bargaining units)
- How to use performance management to understand leadership competencies and gaps
- How human resources can help communicate and facilitate an effective performance evaluation program across the entire institution
Ms. Crowley will be joined by Valerie McDonough, Strategic Consultant, PeopleAdmin.
