Employee Satisfaction Survey…

It’s the time of year for participation in the Employee Satisfaction Survey! Based on feedback from last year, we will conduct the survey annually during the spring semester. The survey window will open this week and close on March 11. We are looking for maximum participation and are providing the following resources to facilitate completion:

  • Ludden Library Computer Lab: 8 - 9 a.m. Monday through Thursday; 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Friday (one-on-one assistance)
  • Kiosks (Hallway by Human Resources), 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday (one-on-one assistance available)

We anticipate results by the end of April and will release the analysis before the end of the semester. Watch for the email and survey link coming out this week!


We are now at 72 percent overall! All employees are required to complete Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Prevention Training annually. This training is available on EaglesEye.

The deadline to complete this training was January 31, 2016. ALL employees (Both Full-time and Part-time) must still complete this requirement.

New upgrades to the Time Clock Plus (TCP) electronic timekeeping system are coming soon. TCP has taken many of the suggested improvements from its users and released Version 7 (V7). We in payroll are excited to get the improvements started for our LCCC system.

For those using the clocks to punch in and out, you will not see any changes. Those employees who use their computers to check in and out, you will see a new format to the initial screen that I think improves the ease of using of the system. The largest changes are to the supervisor’s screens. Again, I think the changes will improve the ease of using the system. Some of the improvements include putting the most-used functions (editing hours and approvals etc.…) on one page or dashboard that can be customized by the supervisor; immediately posting approved leave request to the employee’s timesheet – no longer using the delayed scheduler module; and menus and reports that are more logical and titles that are more descriptive.

Our target date to launch V7 is April 16. Between now and then we need to do mandatory training for supervisors. We also will do employee informational sessions. So starting mid-March to mid-April, we will schedule numerous training sessions both on a campus-wide and a departmental basis for your convenience.

Thanks to all in advance for your help in this exciting project!!

People matter...

Jeri GriegoJeri Griego has taught at LCCC for more than 20 years. She started as an adjunct instructor, and after eight years came on as full-time faculty. She celebrates 20 years of full-time employment in January 2016. Jeri teaches Business, Management, and Accounting. Jeri is well-known in her unofficial role as the “Service Learning” coordinator for the campus. She uses service projects as part of her classroom projects. One example is the United Way Campaign. Jeri is the Campus Campaign Manager and supervises students through the class project to administer this campaign. Jeri also is responsible for initiating the Food Pantry for students who are hungry and have no food. The pantry is run on donations and can be accessed by anyone who had a student ID, full-time or part-time. Jeri is very active on campus, serving on numerous councils and working groups, and attending every Board of Trustees meeting.

One of Jeri’s fondest memories is of a focus group comprised of several LCCC faculty members engaged in Service Learning. The faculty members were participating in a research project related to integrating service learning into their classrooms. Each participant shared their heartfelt story regarding why they thought service was an important teaching strategy and their results in the classroom. The memory is so fond because it was one of shared values of faculty representing several disciplines, all of whom are dedicated to students and the desire to make a difference in the lives of others.

Jeri has received numerous honors and awards and created a number of opportunities for students during her career. But she believes her biggest contribution is in the classroom and her work with students. Each day she connects with students and helps them be successful, not only in the classroom but as members of our campus and community. She pushes her students outside their comfort zone to engage with non-profit organizations while practicing the functions of management. Last fall, one of her students wrote, “It would be fair to say that this project had an enormous impact on my life and how I see charitable organizations. I take my hat off to you, Jeri Griego. You caused an old dog to learn a new trick! I was blessed in the process.” Another tried to describe his joy: “true happiness comes from helping others … I’ve never smiled a true smile before as much as that smile when my group did our project with the UPLIFT children … I smiled from the bottom of my heart.”

I heart HR

Thanks to all who participated in the newsletter contest last month. It was so much fun!! Watch for more...
