Transition from Rave to GB Alert

As of July 1, 2019, the branch campuses will no longer receive emergency notification from Rave, the emergency notification system of the former UW Colleges. All branch campus employees were automatically subscribed to Rave. Employees of Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan campus, to ensure you continue to receive emergency notifications, including wide-spread cancelled classes, drill information and safety communication during credible, on-going threats, you need to sign-up for GB Alert. You will not automatically be signed up. Rave alerts will continue to be sent through July 1, 2019. If you are already a GB Alert subscriber that spends time at other campuses, you may sign-up for additional lists to receive emergency notification customized to you.

New users and Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan Campus, follow sign-up instructions. You will sign in with your UW-Green Bay single sign-on credentials. You must indicate at least one list.

Green Bay Campus, you may edit or view your GB Alert account by logging in.

Employee Assistance Program Transitions to FEI

Effective July 1, 2019, the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) vendor will be changing to FEI. The EAP program is a free, confidential service to you, your dependents, and anyone living in your household. Most of the features of the program will remain the same as they are today with some additional features and benefits.

Beginning July 1, 2019, you, or a member of your household, may contact FEI for services by calling (866) 274-4723 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week).

Some of the EAP services FEI provides are regarding:

  • Emotional Situations: relationships, parenting, grieving
  • Work/Life Challenges: child care, elder care, adoption
  • Legal and Financial Circumstances: managing expenses or debt, preparation of simple wills, child custody or child support

Additional access to FEI is available through their website. Visit https://www.feieap.com (Username: SOWI) to obtain educational information, useful links, help locating child and elder care providers, and self-assessments.

The program’s counseling services are available at no cost to you and/or your household members. Professional counselors are available both via phone and in-person in our local area. You can receive up to 6 sessions, per issue, per year. If additional counseling or services are recommended, the counselor will assist you with accessing providers covered by your health insurance plan.

Those currently receiving counseling sessions: Since the EAP is a confidential program, your employer does not know what services, if any, are being used by an employee. If you are one of the employees currently receiving counseling sessions, your sessions will end on June 30, 2019. Our current EAP administrator will send each of the counselors currently working with employees a letter regarding the transition to FEI to help communicate the change; however, you may also want to talk to your current counselor to find out if they are an affiliate of FEI.

  • If the counselor is already a FEI affiliate you may begin scheduling your sessions to occur on/after July 1st with the same counselor.
  • If the counselor is not yet part of FEI’s network, the counselor may work with FEI to become an affiliate so you may continue your sessions with the same counselor on/after July 1st. If your counselor does not become an affiliate of FEI or you wish to see a different counselor, you should call the FEI phone number above for additional assistance.

Privacy is strictly protected within legal limits. Information about your contact with FEI will not be released without your prior consent except in cases of imminent threat of harm or when abuse of a child or vulnerable adult may be occurring.

You may not need assistance now, but if you or a household member needs help in the future, FEI is available. While we expect the transition to FEI to go smoothly, employees will continue to see improvements in processes or resources for the next few months as FEI begins to serve our employees.

Please contact Human Resources at (920) 465-2390 or hr@uwgb.edu with any questions.

Office Hours & Institutional Closure – July 5, 2019

Due to the 4th of July legal holiday falling on Thursday, July 4, 2019 and consistent with HR 14-17-3 “Office Hours and Institutional Closure Policy”, the Chancellor has authorized the closure of applicable offices on Friday, July 5, 2019 for all UW-Green Bay Campuses.  Area leaders will have the discretion to determine essential and non-essential functions and subsequent individual office closures for the day.  Areas which are identified as essential functions under the policy will be required to be staffed on July 5.  The provision of essential services on the Branch Campuses will be covered by the Green Bay Campus Offices (e.g. GBOSS will function as the office for all Branch Campuses).

Offices that close are asked to post notice on the departmental website and display a notice of office closure a week in advance, including notice of when normal business hours will resume.

Employees may choose to work on July 5.  Any employee who elects to not work on Friday, July 5 must take applicable paid leave for this date, as this institutional closure does not represent an additional holiday.

 

Title & Total Compensation Project Update – May, 2019

https___www.wisconsin

The University of Wisconsin (UW) is embarking on a complete redesign of its current classification and compensation structure. The goal of the Title & Total Compensation Project will be to develop new systems that will enable institutions to continue to attract and retain the best talent.

Recent UW System Updates:

  • UW System job titles and descriptions are being modernized. The goal is to have all UW System titles and job descriptions represent the work commonly done across the system. A new standardized job description format is being implemented that is concise, consistent, and aligns with the Job Framework. While this standardized job description format is simpler, it does not change daily tasks as currently assigned. Some titles used today may not change. New titles are being created for instances where (1) current job titles do not accurately describe the work being performed or (2) current titles do not match those in the market for comparable work.
  • Training is being developed for Fall 2019 to engage human resources staff, managers, and employees in conversations about the transition to the new, modernized and market-informed Job Framework. As a result of this transition, all UW System positions will be mapped to a Job Family, Job Sub-Family, and Standard Job Title and Description.

In the Queue:

  • Review and Revision of DRAFT Standard Job Descriptions, estimated completion: June 2019 (Q2)
  • Summary of Results for the Employee Benefits Preferences Survey, estimated completion: September 2019 (Q3)
  • Benefits Valuation Analysis, estimated completion: September 2019 (Q3)
  • Revised DRAFT Standard Job Descriptions, estimated completion: September 2019 (Q3)

For up-to-date information about the Title & Total Compensation Project, please see the UW System Title & Total Compensation Project website. Answers to frequently asked questions can be found on the UW System FAQ page.

UW-Green Bay Updates:

  • UW-Green Bay HR has reached out to leaders in the Library and Athletics to identify subject matter experts from those UWGB departments who will be a part of SJD revision teams. The Athletics team is currently working in collaboration with Madison/UW System, and the Library team has not yet begun their work
  • UW-Green Bay HR has started conversations with University Staff and Academic Staff governance groups related to a potential appeals process for title determinations.
  • UW-Green Bay has an institutional T&TC project team, whose goal is to engage with subject matter experts and stakeholders. Feedback and information about T&TC flows to and from the project team. A listing of members of the UW-Green Bay institutional T&TC project team can be found here.
  • The Office of Human Resources and Workforce Diversity keeps employees informed on project updates through their weekly HR Connect newsletter and HR Connect blog as well as presenting T&TC updates at monthly governance meetings.
  • The next T&TC open forums will likely be scheduled in late summer or early fall. Please watch the HR Connect newsletter and HR Connect blog for updates.
