Personnel Issues Committee Annual Report
July 5, 2017
The Personnel Committee undertook several initiatives this year that are still in progress. The committee started a conversation with the Office of Human Resources about employee wellness in the workplace. OHR has a budget line-item to hire a full time employee to guide the campus wellness efforts. Work should resume when this position is filled, or if the decision is made not to fill the position, then the cross-campus group should resume meeting. The committee also started exploring the possibility of the annual review for supervisors including more feedback from direct reports. There are not very good models for this on campus and the annual review process is somewhat constrained by the General Administration and the state Legislature. One suggestion was to formalize how to evaluate the Supervision Institutional Goal on the PMCA forms. In addition to these efforts, the Personnel Committee responded to employee concerns about the new monitored leave policy in Facilities Services, raised concerns with the AVC’s about second and third shift building temperatures in summer and winter, and gave voice to general concern about compensation and benefits needed to keep UNC-CH competitive in hiring and retention.
At the end of the year, the Personnel Committee proposed a change to its charter to better reflect the current environment. The new charter is: The Personnel Issues Committee conducts research and frames policy alternatives related to compensation and benefits, University and departmental policies and practices as they relate to individual employees and groups of employees, and campus-wide organizational development activities such as Carolina Service.
