President Mark Huddleston attended the OS Council’s June meeting to help answer questions regarding how workers are supervised.

The discussion focused around the ways employees are evaluated and whether the systems provide a good mechanism for doing so.

“We want to make sure everybody who is in a supervisory position can be a good supervisor,” Huddleston said. “The question becomes what is the best way to do that.”

Councilors noted that many employees would like to see a 360-degree evaluation process implemented that allows employees to provided feedback on their supervisor’s performance during the annual assessment.

There was also some discussion on how the hiring freeze will impact advancement opportunities and whether the university will continue to outsource some jobs such as housekeeping. Sharon Demers, assistant vice president for human resources, offered to find out more about outsourcing changes.

In other news, the council reviewed a proposed change to the sick pool conversion policy that would allow for conversion twice a year instead of once. Also, Ann Boylan from housekeeping became the council’s newest member.
