Dear CSN Family,

Today’s email update highlights important information from Human Resources, one of many topics that we will bring to you to keep you informed about CSN developments over the coming weeks.

First, I want to alert you to the Virtual Town Hall that we have scheduled for 3 p.m. today. Visit our Newsroom blog to learn how you can participate. Please be sure to bring your questions if they are not answered here. As we navigate the remote working environment it is understandable that many of us have questions right now.

I realize that some Human Resources and Workday processes have changed in this new environment, so I’ve asked Chief Human Resources Officer Bill Dial to provide guidance:

  • Some employees have asked how to enter hours worked for those employees who are on administrative leave. For full time-employees who are not currently telecommuting, hours entered should be listed as Administrative Leave, and change the costing allocation. Part-time employees should enter their hours as they normally would and change the costing allocation. Please see the Workday Job Aid for help in entering your time.  
  • Although CSN has successfully transitioned to a fully remote environment, it is important that all members of the CSN Family understand that they have a responsibility to report possible exposure or development of symptoms by using our online Confidential Reporting Form. By having this information, CSN can help connect individuals to resources and information, and answer any related questions.
  • We understand there are challenges any time major change occurs, so CAPE has created an online training for our employees with tips and best practices to help you succeed in the virtual environment: Telecommuting Basics: How to be Successful Working from Home.

Finally, we are so appreciative of the collaboration, flexibility, innovation, and patience our employees have demonstrated in moving into a totally new work environment. Remember, if you still have questions, please attend our virtual town hall this afternoon. I look forward to joining you.

Lastly, I hope you have had a chance to visit our online message board to view all the wonderful, positive stories out there about our students, faculty and staff. Your hard work and dedication to putting our students first are truly an inspiration. Stay safe and CSN proud.

Thank you.
