Two project teams of the Human Resource Practices Development team are seeking community input in the next phase of their work.
The Recognition and Rewards project team will conduct focus groups for support and administrative staff members during the last two weeks of February to present a basket of options for recognition and rewards and to get feedback on these draft recommendations. MIT community members who are interested in participating may contact the team via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling x3-7208. The exact dates and times of the focus groups are being determined.
The Performance Management: Planning, Coaching and Appraisal team is seeking input to develop recommendations to improve the performance appraisal process for the Institute. The team is conducting an anonymous survey for support staff in February and one for adminstrative staff in April. Support staff can access the survey on the Web (as of Friday, Feb.13). Community members may print copies of the survey for others who do not have Web access.
Additionally, the Performance Management team will hold focus groups for support staff on February 18, 19, 24 and 26 from 12:10-12:50 pm at locations to be determined. The purpose will be to discuss the performance appraisal process and focus on ways to improve it.
Support staff who would like to participate in a focus group can send e-mail to email@example.com or call x8-0268. All support staff are welcome to attend, whether or not they have indicated a prior interest.
