Andrea Ellis, director of recruitment and organizational development, and John Champlin, manager of recruitment and organizational development, presented “An Unusual Cross-Utilization of HR Resources” at the 2014 College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) National Conference in San Antonio, Texas, in September.
The session outlined the “Career Planning” series that was launched in the fall of 2012 and the collaboration between the recruiting function and the professional development function within the Wake Forest Human Resources Office. The series has been extremely successful and has grown to include five different career-oriented classes and a number of small-group career coaching events.
Additionally, Ellis and Champlin detailed the “Facilitator-Expert Model” and the roles of each contributor. The approximately 35 attendees were engaged in the discussion and remarked how applicable this model could be at their institutions.
This marks the third year in a row that a member of the Wake Forest Professional Development Center has presented at the National CUPA-HR Conference.
