- Weed out old forms that ask for Social Security number
Please check your saved electronic files and your storage cabinets for old Human Resource Services (HRS) forms that request a Social Security number. If you find one, please get rid of it right away.
- The benefit of pre-termination hearings
The decision to terminate an employee is not something that is taken lightly at Purdue. Supervisors are faced periodically with disciplinary issues that can lead to the loss of employment by an employee. Consequently, it is important that our supervisors ask themselves if they have done everything they know to do to help make an employee successful.
- Welcome new staff into the fold
Most departments and organizations do not realize their fullest potential when introducing new staff to the organization. First impressions of the department are crucial to maintaining and retaining our staff, and this begins when they are first welcomed into our areas. Departments need to provide an outreach to new staff so that they feel like an essential part of the organization from the very first day of employment.
