MI CUPA-HR Conference

Michigan Tech Hosts Conference in Mackinaw City

 

The 2015 Michigan College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (MI CUPA-HR) Conference was hosted by Michigan Technological University September 17-18 in Mackinaw City, MI.

 

This year’s theme People, Process, and Performance:  Bridging the Gap brought together nearly 100 Human Resources professional from 17 different Michigan colleges and universities to share their expertise and energy.   Conference participants attended sessions covering a wide array of topics including Employee Engagement, Wellness Initiatives and the Future, Proposed FLSA Regulations, Conflict Resolution, and Negotiating in Today’s World.  Of particular interest was a session presented by Michigan Tech’s Kerri Sleeman, Executive Director, Facilities Management and assisted by Heidi Reid, Employment Services Representative, Human Resources, titled “Digital Negotiations and the HR Impact”.

 

They were also motivated by keynote speaker, Ken Trazska – President of Seward County Community College/Area Technical College in Kansas, who spoke on creating an inspiring, connected, and respected HR Culture.  Networking opportunities were abundant throughout the conference including a breathtaking Sunset Boat Cruise.

All Michigan Tech Job Applications Now Submitted Electronically

As of October 1, 2014, all Michigan Tech job postings will be set up in PeopleAdmin, an online hiring and application tracking system.  Candidate applications are collected electronically, and can be reviewed online by search committee members.

In 2011, Michigan Tech began using PeopleAdmin, building the system framework for each employee type at Michigan Tech.  This began with non-union staff positions, UAW and POA union positions, and then faculty positions.  This fall, Employment Services and HR Information Systems have finalized the set up and are now posting the last employee group, AFSCME union positions, through PeopleAdmin. Employment Services and HR Information Systems continue to work together to provide excellent service to both the interested applicants and those conducting a search.
