PLANT OPERATIONS CREATING LITERACY IN COMPUTER KNOWLEDGE
In an effort to provide staff
training to increase and facilitate basic computer knowledge,
the department Business Office implemented the Creating Literacy
in Computer Knowledge (CLICK) Program in mid February 2012. As
the university moves forward to a virtual online system for most
of its processes, Plant Operations is using this program to
assist its employees with the tools and training needed to be
prepared while this transition occurs.
The program rollout included an initial orientation of the
program, as well as a follow up training to cover basic computer
use. All sessions were available in both English and Spanish.
Training materials and other program incentives were provided to
those staff members who have participated in this beneficial
program. All training occurs within the recently renovated
computer lab located in the General Services Building.
The program has been well received and feedback from staff has
been positive. Each training session has had an average of 20
attendees, and a total of 24 sessions have been held. Employees
have learned and can now log into PeopleSoft to download pay
stubs, complete online mandatory training, review ePerformance
and obtain leave balance information as well as a bevy of other
The program’s next steps will include training on completing
annual mandatory training online, ePerformance evaluations and
online bi-weekly timesheet completion.
