School Employees to Give Input at After Hours Event

Employees are the Fayette County School System’s most valuable and important resource. In order to serve students in the best possible way, the system works hard to attract the most highly qualified, innovative and dedicated teachers and staff.

Retaining these talented employees is a top priority for the school system’s human resources department. That’s why “HR After Hours, New Hires: Give ‘Em Something to Talk About” was implemented last spring to help foster two-way communication between employees and the school system. It was so successful that a second session has been scheduled for January 15 at the Fayette County Public Library.

The program provides an open forum for employees to learn more about specific aspects of the human resources department as well as share their perspectives and needs.

Information will be gathered about participants’ job experience views including what they like about their job, why they are looking forward to next year, things they wish their supervisor would do, what they need to be a better employee, one thing they would like to change about their work life and areas where they need help. The human resources department will use this information to make adjustments to its programs and services to better meet the needs of all employees.

Let me get this straight, you want none tenured teachers to come in and tell a county office that is looking for ways to cut positions to come in and tell a bunch of knuckle heads what they can do to make things better for them.
Have you lost your mind? The people that will come to these kinds of meetings will be the first to say, "why Dr. D, I think all of you are doing a wonderful job and I can't believe anyone would ever say anything different!".
This whole process is going to get very nasty as it comes down to you taking money from teachers while fat is left uncut in other areas.
Stay tuned.

I think they may want to consider cancelling this program!
I don't think they would like what the employees have to say these days!
