    Employee photography club will meet on June 20 

    The San Jacinto College Employee Photography Club will meet on Friday, June 20 from 12:30-2:00pm at Central Campus in the ILC Kaleidoscope room (C-1.102).  Bring your lunch!  The club is open to all current college employees, retirees, and employee’s spouses and children (minors must be accompanied by their guardian at all times) with an interest in photography.  Photographers at all levels of experience and proficiency – novice to professional – are welcome.

    The meeting will cover two topics.  BRING YOUR CAMERAS!
    1.       Share & Learn and Challenge photos.  We will discuss photos uploaded to the respective albums on the group site: Share & Learn 20140620 and the 20140519 Challenge: Self Portrait albums.  To maximize your opportunity to learn, share one of your photos for which you do not have any ideas on how it may be improved; any suggestions you get about your photo will be something new to you!  You may also upload your photos to flickr and email the link, or you may email a photo to chris.duke@sjcd.edu.
    2.       We will have an open question and answer.  Have your most pressing “How do I…” question ready for the group; we’ll do our best to answer your questions.

    Save the date!  Future photography club meetings will be: Friday, July 18, and Friday, August 8.

    If you have questions about the Employee Photography Club, contact a club facilitator:

    HR introducing Electronic Personnel Action Forms 

    The College will introduce Banner’s Electronic Personnel Action Form (EPAF) function to non-Human Resources employees in October 2013.  EPAFs allow for paperless processing of personnel actions.  They are intended to replace the current usage of Personnel Action Request (PAR) paper forms.  EPAFs are simple, concise and allow many values or data elements to default into the form without manual data entry.

    The Human Resources team will be offering training sessions for EPAFs in October for those employees who normally complete or approve the current paper PAR forms.  Training will be offered both in person as well as computer-based and registration will occur in SPARK.  We will be sending out a follow-up communication regarding training dates and locations later this week.  Please note that training is mandatory in order to utilize the EPAF system.  Our goal is to eliminate the paper PAR forms by December 2, 2013.

    Benefits of Self-Service EPAFs:
    ·        Transactions are processed in a timely manner
    ·        Supports the green initiative by eliminating paper processing
    ·        Reduced data entry error
    ·        Ability to track the location of EPAFs in the system

    Additionally, the Human Resources, Payroll and ITS departments have worked diligently to offer various innovative solutions to the College.  Web Time Entry Phase I for Part Time, Non-Teaching Employees, Benefits Open Enrollment, and EPAFs for Human Resources staff are a few initiatives that have been implemented in 2013, with several other initiatives coming this fiscal year.

Jan. 11 was Campus Community Day when everyone met for instructional meetings and to welcome all new employees. President Dr. Allatia Harris welcomed administrators and department chairs to a seminar held in the Monument Room, where Psychology professor Darla Rocha, and Philosophy professor Edwin Aiman gave a presentation about ramifications and issues stemming from the recent Penn State scandal.

    On Jan. 13, all employees were treated to a chili lunch as a way to show appreciation for their efforts to prepare the campus for the first day of classes. Dr. Harris, Dr. Gary Friery, Dr. Richard Bailey, Shawn, Silman, Sarita Dickey, and Amy Ammerman were administrators who provided service with a smile as they dished up steaming bowls of delicious chili and trimmings.
