IU Mobile App Adds Employee Services
The IU Mobile app recently added a new category developed by University Human Resources: Employee Services. The services currently consist of a phone list of urgent assistance and other helpful numbers and travel assistance for full-time employees before and during travel. Additional services will be added in the future.
Accessible anytime, anywhere, IU Mobile delivers information and services such as the Knowledge Base and Ask IU for all Indiana University campuses. IU Mobile is available at no charge to employees. iPhone and iPad users can download the app through iTunes at itunes.apple.com/us/app/iu-mobile/id383456985; Android users can download the app from AppBrain at www.appbrain.com.
In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act and the safety-related requirements of the Higher Education Opportunity Act, the IU Police Department provides an Annual Security Report including statements addressing the university's policies, procedures, and programs concerning safety and security, for example, policies for responding to emergency situations and sexual offenses. Three years' worth of statistics are included for certain types of crimes that were reported to have occurred on campus, in or on off campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the university and on public property within or immediately adjacent to the campus. These reports are available online by campus as listed on the Public Safety and IU Police web site at protect.iu.edu/police/crimestats. Paper copies can be requested from the campus IUPD contacts.
Earlier this year, Indiana University began conducting a review of Service jobs and wage structures on all IU campuses. The objective of the review is to develop a rational salary administration program for Service jobs that aligns with the relevant labor markets for each campus location. Project deliverables include establishing updated jobs with distinguishable duties and levels of work, classifying individual positions into these jobs, and updating wage structures.
Management from each campus is working with Human Resources staff to update jobs; classify positions into jobs; and develop recommendations for the wage structures. Vice Chancellors of Finance & Administration and other university administrators provide feedback throughout the process.
Service Staff are encouraged to review the completed Job Specifications (summary of the duties for the updated jobs) and provide feedback to management. The Job Specifications and more detailed information about the project are available online at hr.iu.edu/salary/SM.
Future communications to Service Staff will include memos, meetings with employee groups, and regular updates to the project web site. Implementation of the university-wide salary administration program is planned for July 2013.
2012 medical and dental plan booklets are available at hr.iu.edu/benefits/plan_booklets.html. The booklets include details about plan coverage, claims/appeals, customer service, and COBRA coverage.
Information about HIPAA Privacy Practices, Medicaid/CHIP Special Enrollment and other important federal notices of employee rights are available in plan booklets and on the Web site at hr.iu.edu/benefits/federal_notices.htm.
