New Process for General Information Emails for Employees

As you know, every day we receive several General Information emails at 4pm. In an attempt to both decrease the amount of emails we receive and have better communication, the PD Office worked in collaboration with Information Services to develop a new process for general information emails.  With this process employees will receive ONE email each day that will include all General Information messages for employees.  Please note this process is ONLY for information for employees and not for information to students.  To share general information to students you will continue to email GI@palomar.edu.

Both the IS Help Desk and the PD Office will provide support if needed.

Plenary General Session and Happy Video

Thank you to everyone for making our first all-college plenary a successful event.  It was so great to see our workshops filled with diverse groups of employees learning together.  This was a big change for us and I think it went pretty well!  I am sorry about running out of food and water so fast at today’s lunch, next year we will have to double our order!

Here’s our Happy Video (please share!):

 

 

Our first all-college plenary event

Our college theme for 2017-2018 is “Better Together.”  This year we are truly Better Together with our very first all-college plenary event!  All plenary activities (the keynote on Thursday, the workshops, and the general session) are designed to create an environment where learning is valued for all Palomar employees!

We are PALOMARPOWERED Employees! We are Better Together!

I would love to hear about your experience at plenary.  What were your “aha” moments or takeaways?  What did you learn today that you’d like to share with others?
