HUMAN CAPITAL STRATEGIC TASK FORCE FINDINGS
The Human Capital Task Force makes the following report to the Fairmont State Strategic Planning Steering Council.
Task Force members included: Steve Roof (chair), Bobbi Dodd, Judy Biafore, Steve Leach
Given the constraints in funding it seems unlikely that we will be able to directly address the first criteria involved in employee job satisfaction (fair and equitable compensation) by giving everyone a raise. It may be possible to increase the amount of dollars available for salary increases by redefining the way in which jobs are divided (work smarter not harder) or by reducing class sections by increasing class size. However this second approach is not recommended because it changes one of the key distinguishing features of Fairmont State, namely small class size. The potential for damaging seems to outweigh the savings that larger classes would provide.
