On behalf of the A-3 Assembly and the Penn Professional Staff Assembly (PPSA) we would like to extend an invitation to all A-3 and A-1 employees to the special information session on Thursday. This will be an opportunity for employees to hear information on several issues facing us in the next few months.
John Fry will speak on his plans for management and staff development, as well as an overview on his office's initiatives for this year and next. Annie McKee will speak specifically to plans for a management development program and a skills development center for the University. Finally, Jack Heuer will speak to the rollout of the PIQ process. (Employees will recall filling out a 26-page document involving job description and specific job duties and tasks, which was aimed at measuring the University's classification structure for its professional and nonprofessional jobs.) Mr. Heuer will also discuss Phase II of benefits redesign.
These presentation will be followed by a 30-minute question-and-answer session involving all of our presenters and members of their staffs. Please try to attend, or if you can't, make sure someone from your office is there.
You want answers, you want information, here is your chance. Make this joint program of the A-3 Assembly and PPSA a success. Please plan to attend on Thursday, February 26, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Room 102 Chemistry Building.
