Job family structure to be addressed in presentation, town hall

A presentation and town hall meeting for Purdue employees regarding the job family structure effort, part of the Transform Purdue project, is scheduled for Monday (Oct. 1). This event is hosted by Purdue Libraries and will be moderated by the officers of APSAC and CSSAC.

The gathering will be at 1:30-3:30 p.m. in Lynn Hall, Room 1136. Space is limited and there is no RSVP or registration, so those wanting to attend should arrive early.

The job family structure is a major component of the Human Capital Management portion of Transform Purdue, which already has implemented Enterprise Asset Management and General Ledger phases. Another key part of HCM is the coming upgrade of employee recordkeeping to SAP SuccessFactors, set for Jan. 1.

At the gathering, a representative of the Transform Purdue team will provide a presentation about the job family structure. An audience Q&A time will follow. The moderators will be Brittany Vale and Dan Vukobratovich, chair and vice chair of the Administrative and Professional Staff Advisory Committee, along with Mandy Smith and Jeremy Wampler, chair and vice chair of the Clerical and Service Staff Advisory Committee. APSAC and CSSAC have been hearing reports from Transform Purdue team members and conveying many questions and concerns of the employees the two groups represent.

In the job family structure, every staff position has received analysis for appropriate placement in a more transparent system of families and subfamilies. The job family structure lays the foundation for clarity into roles, career paths, compensation potential, and titling.

As announced several times, including in President Mitch Daniels' annual letter in January 2018, no employee will receive lower pay as a result of the job family structure. The nature of most current jobs is not expected to change in the short term. The expectation is that over several years, as people retire, receive promotions or leave Purdue, the process will be filled out. Officials, having worked through a current 8,500 job titles, hope to be able to tell employees the classification of their jobs sometime in November.

Scheduling of additional presentation/town hall meetings in the near future is being discussed.
