OS Council Discusses Goals

By Jody Record, Campus Journal Editor
July 23, 2008

A survey conducted earlier this year by the OS Council cited the same top four concerns as those revealed in a poll taken during the 2007 benefits fair: wages, parking, advancement opportunities and healthcare costs and benefits.

Results of the April 2008 survey were shared at the July 9 council meeting.

A question related to the issues asked what employees would like to see improved on or changed. In response to a follow-up query of whether either change or improvement is possible, 53 respondents replied yes while 64 answered no. A total of 208 people took the survey.

To the question of what workers like best about their jobs, the top three answers were coworkers, benefits and the tasks they perform or the variety of work they do.

The results of the survey have been shared with President Mark Huddleston.

In other news, councilors decided there is no conflict of interest in having chairman Matty Leighton also record the meeting minutes. There was also a discussion on a brainstorming session that had taken place at a previous meeting where counselors identified objectives to address in the future.

After reviewing the goals, the following were determined to be priorities: creating a 360-degree evaluation process; establishing a review board to hear employees’ concerns/complaints; updating the OS Council Web site; and helping UNH–M employees address their issues.

Additionally, councilors decided on the next topic for the OS communication boards, used to help keep employees who don’t have access to computers abreast of current issues and council actions.

Currently the communication boards have information on UNH’s wellness program as well as minutes from prior meetings.
