APAC to Host ‘Workforce Planning’ Town Hall Event

Although happy occasions for retirees, staff retirements can seriously effect departmental operations.

ARE THERE potential staffing changes in your College or Department? How will you minimize the impact? What institutional knowledge do you want to keep and how will you keep it? How will you seamlessly fill vacated positions with capable new hires?

IF YOU are looking for answers to any of these questions, you should attend the “Workforce Planning” town hall meeting on Friday, March 2. This event will provide attendees with an overview of relevant concerns and considerations, a review of campus resources, recommendations for successfully managing staffing changes, real-life campus examples, and a summary of best practices. This town hall meeting is focused on tools and techniques for managers to address changes in their workforce. It is not designed to address benefits, pending legislation, pension reform, SURS changes or retirement planning. Please see the event details, below.

PRESENTERS ARE Gloria Keeley, assistant vice president, Office of Business and Financial Services (OBFS) administrative services (UA); Jami Painter, Assistant Vice President, UA employee relations and human resources (UA); Kim Morris Lee, director of organizational effectiveness (UIC); and Wayne Stahl, director of organizational effectiveness (UA).

THE AGENDA includes:

*Knowledge Retention – What’s coming? Why? What’s the impact? What are some solutions we can implement now?

*Talent Management – What is talent management, and how to leverage talent and retain knowledge capital in the current environment.

*Talent Management Tools – An introduction to what is available.

*Succession Planning – Practical examples

*Maximizing the New Hire’s Experience – Effective on-boarding, orientation, and the role of the manager.

THE EVENT will be held Friday, March 2, 9 to 11 a.m. in the Illinois Room, Student Center East, 750 S. Halsted St., and is hosted by the Academic Professional Advisory Committee (APAC). Register at https://illinois.edu/fb/sec/1041738.
