John Maxwell once said, “If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone.”
Over the past year Texas State Technical College has implemented a number of strategic decisions to support our future growth: we became one college, realigned our financial and organizational resources and began building a new location. During this process employees have asked questions at different campus forums that all employees may be interested in receiving information about. Here are a two questions and answers from recent forums:
Question: I haven’t received a letter about my new compensation and title but my co-worker did. When will I find more information?
Answer: If you have not yet received a letter indicating your new title and compensation level, that's probably an indication that your supervisor is still working on job descriptions for your area or your position was recently reviewed and the letter is being finalized. Several hundred additional positions have been reviewed in just the past six weeks. If you want information about the current status of your position, contact Hannah Love (Hannah.firstname.lastname@example.org)
Question: I don’t feel like I have enough training to do my job. Is there anything happening to make more training available to employees?
Answer: The Innovations team will facilitate both Staff and Faculty Development for the new college. Kyle Smith, Vice President of Innovations, is the statewide lead, and Gena Jean (Waco), Gina Cano-Monreal (Harlingen), Wendy Ousley (Marshall), Holle England (Abilene) Devera Shipp ( Waco) and Glenn Bedgood (Sweetwater) are your current Professional Development points of contact. You will see opportunities expanding as this team develops new resources and expands training options. There is a statewide Online Learning Committee formed and there will be Faculty and Staff Development committees that make recommendations on future training for the college
