Navigating Employee Considerations for Reopening in the Fall

Navigating Employee Considerations for Reopening in the Fall

June 15, 2020 | 12:30 - 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time

Join your peers and our experts for an engaged dialogue about personnel considerations and employee policies for fall reopening.

Overview

Many colleges and universities are grappling with how best to handle personnel-related decisions in connection with fall semester plans. Human resources, finance, and administration professionals are constantly balancing employees’ fears and concerns about returning to campus with institutional obligations and liabilities. At the same time, these teams must also craft new policies that reflect current realities. Add in considerations around cross-training, reallocation of staff time, and support for managers, and it is quite a heavy lift.

This training will help you work through the many employee-related decisions you have to make by connecting you with peers to discuss, brainstorm, and share your best current thinking. You will hear from two experts about their plans and work in small groups to discover what your colleagues are doing to tackle questions around working in a hybrid in-person/remote environment, how to handle childcare challenges, and how to best support managers.

 

Who Should Attend

This training will benefit human resources, finance, and administration professionals. Institutional leaders who are serving on task forces or planning committees related to the fall 2020 reopening of campus may also benefit.

 

Limited Attendance

In order to ensure a high-quality learning experience, we have intentionally designed this Virtual Training to have a limited number of total attendees. To ensure access from both paying participants and also from those who have an All-Inclusive membership, when the membership cap is reached, only paying participants can register after that point (while spaces are still available). If you have questions about whether this program is right for you, please contact us.

The Academic Impressions Virtual Workshop Experience

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to exploring responsive issues in higher education. Our virtual workshops provide you with an active learning environment and an online space where you can explore ideas, get inspired by what your peers are doing, and understand the range of possibilities around a certain topic. Depending on what you need to solve a specific challenge at your institution, you will have the chance to gain ideas, plans, refinements, or connections with those undergoing the same challenges as you. You will leave these sessions with practical solutions that you can take back to your team or task force.

What you will get:

  • Learn from what your peers are doing across the nation
  • Gather unique and creative approaches that you may not have thought about
  • Validate and vet plans and priorities
  • Contribute your ideas and help shape the conversation
  • Get work done in a space that’s designed to help you reflect, be creative, and maintain focus on the issue
  • Connect with subject matter experts who steer the conversation and add value
  • Experience expert facilitation to ensure practical outcomes and takeaways

As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds nationally, it is so important to keep connecting and networking with your peers - at a “social distance” - and to keep learning and developing as higher-ed leaders and professionals. Don’t let social distancing and quarantines prevent you from setting aside time for professional development. Everything is changing so fast; more than ever, we need to be pooling our resources and knowledge and finding the best ways to develop our capacity, connect and share with each other, and move forward during a challenging time.

*A limited number of FREE member spots are open for each virtual training. Sign up today.
