Human Resources update
February 25th, 2013
Please find below updates on several Human Resources initiatives, along with key dates:
Leadership Development Program
The Professional Development Center is accepting applications through March 15 for the 2013-2014 Leadership Development Program. The program continues to be open to 10 faculty and 10 staff members, a structure that creates a diverse learning environment and helps participants gain a new appreciation of the different roles and departments across campus. Please visit the Leadership Development Program web page for further information.
Youth Employment Program
Applications now are being accepted from departments who are interested in hiring a student dependent for this summer’s Youth Employment Program. The program has been enhanced to model the Wake Fellows Program. More information can be found at the Youth Employment Program web page.
Student dependents of faculty or staff who are interested in applying for the program may do so March 15-31 through the Wake Forest career portal. Position descriptions will be posted once the application period begins, and selected students will be notified by April 30. The PDC will offer afternoon and evening resume building classes to help prospective students create their application materials.
Annual Benefits Enrollment
The annual benefits enrollment period will take place April 1-12, offering benefit-eligible faculty and staff the opportunity to review and update their elections. The annual benefits fair will take place on April 2 in Benson 401.
Centralized Temporary Staffing Services
Wake Forest will launch a centralized temporary staffing service later this summer, which will allow the Human Resources team to support your temporary staffing needs in a convenient and cost-effective manner. We will work with campus departments to determine if the temporary staffing needs can be met through in-house “Wake” temporary employees, or through a preferred agency partner. More information is forthcoming.
Please contact the Human Resources team at x4700, or AskHR@wfu.edu, for questions.
