Work in progress
Work continues on the expansion of Rimland’s web portal. In August, we announced the integration of our employee recruitment system into the portal. Now, in October, we have begun testing a new phase of the project: incorporating six administrative processes into the portal, include processing medical leave requests, schedule changes, employee grievance forms, and meeting requests. With the goal of going “live” with this functionality later this month, the testing allows employees a trial period in which to access and submit “test” forms online, interact with supervisors and colleagues, and offer feedback on the experience before the processes are finalized.
The developments have been especially exciting for CEO Pamela Watson, as it has been her vision for several years to move the organization toward paperless administration and to create in Rimland’s web portal a “one-stop shop” for staff, families, and the public.
