Uncommon Thinking for the Common Good™Stay
Hi folks….I have a non IT related question for the group.
We are in the middle of evaluating the overall culture in engineering and one of the committees that was formed was professional development and mentoring for staff. One thing that came up in our first meeting was the lack of a local HR representative in the school. Historically, we have always had one but when the last person in this position left, they spread the responsibilities out across different individuals. The overall feeling from the group is that this actually hurts the school since there isn’t a single resource with the expertise to coordinate and manage development and/or recognition programs at the school level.
So, my question to the group, do your schools have a dedicated, local HR representative or id the responsibilities spread out across departments, leveraging the central HR department?
