Results of the "Survey of Organizational Excellence"
 

In November 2004, TAMIU participated in the Survey of Organizational Excellence, an instrument used by the State of Texas to measure attutudes and strengths of organizations in an effort to improve and create better organizations. The survey was distributed to all full-time employees of TAMIU, and 58.57% responded. Based on the results of the survey, the areas of strength are Strategic Orientation, Quality, Physical Environment, Benefits, and External Communication, while the areas of concern are Fair Pay, Internal Communication, Supervisor Effectiveness, Team Effectiveness, and Change Orientation. Detailed information about the results can be reviewed in the HR Office.

As a step to enhance our strengths and address our areas of concern, the University enthusiastically anticipates its next Staff Enrichment Day on May 20, 2005. The day will be dedicated to offering employees learning sessions for personal and professional enrichment under a relaxed and casusal atmosphere.

Texas A&M International University is committed to annually participating in the Survey of Organizational Excellence and continuing to evaluate progress, all while continuing to develop initiatives that promote openness, accountability, unity, enrichment, and growth among its employees.

Thank you for your contribution to the success of our University!

 


Annual Performance Evaluations Due 3/4/05
 

Once again, it is time to do Annual Performance Evaluations. Annual Performance Evaluations are given to classified and administrative staff who have completed their 6 months probationary period at least 60 days prior to February 1st. The purpose of performance evaluations is to meet with the employee to review their performance, identify areas needing improvement, set specific goals and objectives, reinforce the employee's role in the department, and review the employee’s PDQ (Position Description Questionnaire).

During the first week of February, supervisors will be emailed a list of the employees in their area who need to be evaluated. For each employee, supervisors must complete a performance evaluation form and “Professional Development Planning Worksheet,” then conduct a meeting with the employee to discuss the evaluation and to review the PDQ. The signed forms (performance evaluation, worksheet, and PDQ) are due at the HR Office by Friday, March 4, 2005.

Based on a recent System audit, the performance evaluation process now involves the following:

  • The supervisor and employee should set goals and objectives, as needed, for the factors evaluated.
  • Together, the supervisor and employee are required to review/sign/date the employee’s current PDQ on file with HR. If the PDQ is still current, the employee and supervisor sign/date the PDQ and return it to HR attached to the performance evaluation. If the PDQ needs updating, a new PDQ is completed/signed/dated and returned to HR attached to the performance evaluation.

Performance evaluation forms are accessible at the HR website under FORMS. For classified staff, the "Classified Staff Evaluation Form" is used, and for administrative staff, the "Professional/Administrative Staff Evaluation Form" is used. Each evaluation form includes a "Professional Development Planning Worksheet" which supervisors need to complete for each employee evaluated. This worksheet assists the HR Office in planning for employee training opportunities.

If you have any questions regarding the Annual Performance Evaluation process, please contact Xochitl Kladis at ext. 2364.

 



Online Training Course Available for Supervisors Preparing to Conduct Annual Performance Evaluations
 

In February, supervisors will perform one of the most important aspects of their job: conducting annual performance evaluations for their staff. To help supervisors in preparing and delivering performance evaluations, the System offers an online training course called "Managing Employee Performance." It is designed not only to provide guidance for preparing and delivering performance evaluations, but also to help better-manage employee performance throughout the year.

This online training is a good basic course for new supervisors and an excellent refresher for experienced supervisors. HR strongly encourages supervisors to take time to go through this course. The benefits to the supervisor as well as the employee will far outweigh the time spent! The course takes about 2 to 2.5 hours to complete. It can be done all at once or in several shorter sessions. If you do it in shorter sessions, your place will be bookmarked so you can later start up where you left off.

You can access the course from HRConnect. Once logged-on, click on the TRAINING tab, select "Managing Employee Performance" from the drop-down menu, then click on "Start Selected Course."

If you should have questions about this online training course, please contact Xochitl Kladis at ext. 2364.

 

Construction Update
 
The construction pace for the Science Building is hectic at this point because April 16, the opening date, is rapidly approaching! Installation of the dome inside the planetarium (the screen) began on January 31 and is progressing well. Once work on the dome is finished, the seating will be installed next. Then, the planetarium contractor returns to install the projection and audio equipment. And, as you can see by now, the pyramid glass has been fully installed.

On January 16, a group from the University traveled to the offices of F & S Partners in Dallas to attend the 90% plan review of the Kinesiology facility. The entire plans were reviewed in an all-day meeting with the architects and engineers, and adjustments are currently being made. The detailed design review meeting will be held on March 9 and 10 so that the project can be advertised for the competitive sealed proposals.

The master plan update has been completed, and the final version is on the University homepage. To view it, just click on “View Master Plan.” Mr. Jose Garcia, VP for Finance & Administration, comments that the master plan update has been a very important project for the future of TAMIU and everyone involved over the past year has done a terrific job in providing crucial information.

Single Sign On to Debut in Mid-February!
 

In a few weeks, you will have access to Single Sign On, a convenient, one-stop website that will give you quick access to TAMUS online applications. Here is a snapshot of the main Single Sign On screen:

Screen shot of Single Sign-on

This easy-to-use website will enable you to switch between HRConnect and LeaveTraq without having to log in more than once. Other future applications will be accessible through Single Sign On as they become available. And because Single Sign On will be the sole point-of-entry for these applications, you’ll have to remember only one password! Single Sign On also has enhanced security features to further protect your personal information.

To log into Single Sign On, you will need your Universal Identification Number (UIN). You can find your UIN on HRConnect by clicking the “Show me my Universal Identification Number” button or on LeaveTraq by clicking the “more>” button. For active employees, your UIN can also be found on the front of your TAMIU employee ID card (the TAMIU OneCard). Start learning and using your UIN to log into HRConnect and/or LeaveTraq. Once Single Sign On becomes available, you will not be able to use your SSN to log into HRConnect nor LeaveTraq.

As for your Single Sign On password, you will use your current LeaveTraq password. This will become your Single Sign On password. If you do not have a LeaveTraq password, you can use your HRConnect password. If you have a LeaveTraq password but do not remember it, you should select “ I forgot my password ” from the main Single Sign On screen.

Single Sign On will provide instructions guiding you through the login process, and its “wizard” feature can help answer your questions.

If you have questions about Single Sign On, please contact Jessica Palacios, Associate Director, at ext. 2362 or Nora Guereca, HR Benefits Manager, at ext. 2363. (For information regarding the TAMIU OneCard, please contact the OneCard Center at ext. 2877 or visit their office in SC 128).

 

UNUM Re-Assessing Certain Denied Long-Term Disability Claims
 

According to the terms of a recent settlement with state insurance regulators and the Department of Labor, UNUM, our former Long-Term Disability plan administrator, is re-assessing Long-Term Disability claims that were denied or closed between 1/1/00 and 1/18/05. As a result, some TAMUS employees whose claims were denied during that period may soon receive letters from UNUM letting them know that they have the option to have their claims re-assessed.

If you have questions regarding the Long-Term Disability plan, please contact Jessica Palacios, Associate Director, at ext. 2362.

 

Celebrex Being Re-Evaluated by the FDA and Pfizer
 

Recent evaluations of the arthritis drug Celebrex showed an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes in people using high dosages of the drug. However, previous tests of the drug showed no such risk. The Food and Drug Administration and Pfizer, the drug manufacturer, are studying the drug and determining what steps to take next. In the meantime, Celebrex will remain on the market.

EHS (Eckerd Health Services) has announced that Celebrex will remain a formulary drug for the time being. None of the System-offered HMO’s have issued statements regarding Celebrex. To read the statement issued by EHS, click here.

If you have questions regarding your EHS coverage, please contact Jessica Palacios, Associate Director, at ext. 2362 or Nora Guereca, HR Benefits Manager, at ext. 2363.
 

A&M Care Health Plan Participants No Longer Need to Provide Receipts When Using the Debit Card for Mail-Order Drug Purchases
 

The Health Care Spending Account Flex Convenience Debit Card now recognizes mail-order drug co-payments for EHS. This means Health Care Spending Account participants who are enrolled in A&M Care health plans (A&M Care 350 or A&M Care 1250) can purchase prescription drugs through mail-order using their debit cards without having to provide receipts. However, if a person fills multiple prescriptions through mail-order at the same time, a receipt will still be required. Since the mail-order co-payments are twice the retail pharmacy co-payments, A&M Care participants will also be able to use the debit cards to purchase two drugs together at EHS-network pharmacies, provided the co-payments for the two drugs are the same. This change does not apply to double primary care physician and specialist office visit co-payments. The debit card does not recognize double drug co-payments for the other A&M System-offered health plans.

Revised debit card Q&A’s to address questions users have had since the card was introduced are available online. Also available online are a set of examples explaining when the user must provide a receipt for purchases made using the debit card. To view the Q&A’s, click here. To view the examples, click here.

If you have questions regarding your Tax Saver Spending Account, please contact Jessica Palacios, Associate Director, at ext. 2362.

Employment is contingent upon receipt of the appropriate visa, and the process to obtain certain visas can be lengthy. Please let us know if you have anyone needing assistance.

Also be reminded that ALL immigration requests, forms, petitions, documents, etc. must be routed through the HR Office, and that the President, Dr. Ray M Keck III, is the University's authorized endorser of immigration forms.

Advertising and Hiring Procedures
for Non-Faculty Vacancies
 

Below is a simple step-by-step outline of the advertising and hiring procedures for non-faculty vacancies. If you need assistance at any time during this process, please call the Employment Office at ext. 2360.

Step 1--

 

Hiring department submits to HR a completed and signed Personnel Requisition and, if the job description for the vacant position has changed, an updated Position Description Questionnaire (PDQ).

  Step 2--
 

HR prepares a Job Vacancy Notice (JVN) and posts it: at two bulletin board locations on campus; on the TAMIU HR website and HigherEdJobs.com; with the Texas Workforce Commission; with The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (if administrative); in the local newspaper; and with various agencies.

NOTES:

 
  • To advertise your JVN as a full ad in the local newspaper, in another newspaper, or in a pertinent journal/publication, please work with the Purchasing Department to get pricing, generate a requisition, and have the ad placed. Please work with HR to develop the actual ad. HR will then provide the ad to the Purchasing Department.
  • To post a vacancy on a pertinent, free Internet advertising site, please ensure you use the exact wording from the JVN developed by the HR Office. We recommend simply using a direct link to the actual JVN accessible from the HR"Employment" website.
  Step 3--
 

HR receives and reviews applications, then sends the hiring department copies of applications of those who meet the minimum qualifications advertised.

  Step 4--
 

After reviewing applications, the hiring department contacts HR to identify the applicant(s) selected for interview.

  Step 5--
 

Hiring department schedules and conducts interview(s) with applicant(s).

NOTE:

 
  • Resource materials containing guidelines for conducting interviews and conducting reference checks are available online from the HR "Employment" website.
  Step 6--
 

Hiring department completes Referral for Interview form for each interviewed applicant.

  Step 7--
 

When a selection is made, the hiring department submits to HR all completed and signed Referral for Interview forms and a Personnel/Budget Action Form for the selected applicant.

  Step 8--
 

HR makes the offer of employment to the individual selected, schedules the start date, and notifies the hiring department when the new hire can be expected to report for work.

  IMPORTANT:
 
  • All HR forms mentioned above must be typed.
  • All HR forms mentioned above are available online from the HR website under FORMS.
  • Hiring departments must ensure all forms are routed through appropriate approval channels before submitting to HR.
  • The System online training course called "Conducting Effective Interviews" is available to you from HRConnect. Simply log in to HRConnect, click on the TRAINING tab, and follow the instructions given.
 

What is Expected of You When You Are Expecting
 

The coming of a baby calls for many preparations...even at work. If you or your spouse are expecting a baby, below is a checklist of matters (leave, benefits, and other) which must be promptly addressed in the HR Office. (For leave assistance, contact Xochitl Kladis at ext. 2364, and for benefits assistance, contact Jessica Palacios at ext. 2362.)

LEAVE

 
  • At least 30 days prior to your leave, notify HR and visit with them to discuss your leave options (Family/Medical Leave, Parental Leave) and to review your available leave balances (sick leave, vacation, OCT, SCT.)
  • A written request for Family/Medical Leave or Parental Leave must be submitted. Also, a "Medical Certification Form" must be completed by your doctor and submitted to HR within 15 days of the request for leave. This form is available at the HR website under FORMS. Re-certification may be required.
  • During your leave, all appropriate leave requests must be submitted via LeaveTraq and timecards must be submitted to HR (if applicable).
  INSURANCE
 
  • A newborn must be enrolled for insurance coverage within 60 days of the child’s birth. An employee who already has "employee/family" or "employee/child(ren)" coverage may add a newborn after the 60-day limit because the premium does not change; however, the newborn should be added as soon as possible to ensure accurate records.
  • If you are on paid leave (Family/Medical Leave, Parental Leave), your share of the premiums will continue to be deducted from your pay.
  • If you exhaust your available leave while on Family/Medical Leave, you will need to pay any monthly premiums that are normally deducted from your pay. You will be billed each month while on leave without pay, and the premiums must be paid within 30 days of the due date shown on the bill or coverage will end.
  • If you are on Parental Leave without pay, you are not eligible to receive the state contribution for basic life and medical benefits, but you may continue coverage by paying the full monthly premium. You will be billed each month, and the premiums must be paid within 30 days of the due date shown on the bill or coverage will end.
  MISCELLANEOUS
 
  • You are expected to check-in with your supervisor every 2 weeks during your leave to inform him/her of your status and expected date of return to work.
  • A written doctor’s release is required upon your return to work.
