Human Resources Knowledge Sharing Takes to the Road

Posted Jun. 9, 2014

During the month of June, representatives from Kent State University’s Division of Human Resources will travel to the Kent State Regional Campuses, the Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine and the Kent State University Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg.

Human Resources Knowledge-Sharing sessions are sponsored by the Division of Human Resources and provide an informal way for employees to ask questions or share interests or concerns with human resources professionals and Kent State. Human resources representatives from the following departments will be available:

  • Benefits
  • Compensation 
  • Employee Engagement and Outreach 
  • Employee Relations 
  • HR Communications 
  • Records 
  • Talent Acquisition 
  • Training and Development

Running concurrently with the Human Resources Knowledge-Sharing visits will be two sessions that will include information regarding the Impact Employee Assistance Program, introduction of Be Well Solutions (Kent State's newly contracted wellness provider), and an introduction of the new wellness coordinator. In addition, the Office of General Counsel will do a short presentation and overview. Sessions provided by University Benefits and General Counsel will run two times per visit to allow for appropriate coverage in the work areas.

Human Resources Knowledge Sharing sessions are designed to be informal and available to both faculty and staff, and no appointment is necessary. Employees are welcome to attend any scheduled Human Resources Knowledge Sharing session and a complete list of dates and times for all sessions is posted on the Human Resources website at http://www2.kent.edu/hr/employee/hrks.cfm.

Additional sessions will be added on the Kent Campus in upcoming weeks. For questions, contact Karen Watson, employee relations manager, at 330-672-4636 or kswatson@kent.edu.
