    • UAW Classification Audit Committee Report Committee Members: Sherry Saarinen, Cathy Banfield, Barb Ruotsala, Mike Abbott, Paula Zenner, Sharron Paris Becky Christianson, Facilitator
    • Charge to the committee
      • Make form more user friendly
      • Make sure categories are weighted correctly
      • Dealing with anomalies where it perceived the tool doesn’t fit
      • Address changing technology
      • Coming up with better ways to define what positions do
      • What value does the tool/process bring to MTU?
    • How we got to where we are now
      • Decided that it would be important to ask office professionals and supervisors what they wanted/needed in an audit tool
      • Offered 5 focus group times to supervisors and 7 times to office professionals
      • Conducted focus groups during December
      • Compiled results and took back to the committee
    • What we learned from OP
      • Current tool was frustrating to complete (what do they want to know???)
      • Concerns about not being upgraded
      • People had lost faith in the process
      • Hard to write down what people do
      • There must be ‘magic words’ to get an upgrade
      • Lists of duties vary from department to department
    • What we learned from supervisors
      • Current tool is intimidating
      • What are the “right words” needed to complete an audit form?
      • Need to reduce the “fear factor” around the process
      • Person and position are difficult to separate
      • Want fairness in the process
      • Budget issues around upgrades
    • Proceeding from focus groups
      • Needed to re-examine categories and weight of each
      • Improve tool to make more user-friendly
      • Discussed creating guide for Office Professionals and what to include
      • Added list of Action Verbs to guide
      • Have audit tool and guide available on the web
    • Next Steps
      • Decided to integrate check boxes into the form
      • Examined current form for appropriateness
      • How have positions changed since the current form was created?
      • What categories have changed since the current form was created?
      • Original plan was to roll out the ‘new form’ in mid February…
    • Benchmarking
      • Web search resulted in at least 15 forms to benchmark
      • Forms ranged from 2 to 17 pages
      • Good ideas/wording to incorporate into our form (obtained permission from schools)
      • Pre-audit information
      • Office Professional guide
      • Stuff available on the web
    • Energizer ® bunnies…
      • Almost finished with the OP guide when it was decided to add a supervisor guide
      • Examined and changed distribution of categories to reflect current positions
      • Developed FAQ sections for each guide from focus group questions/comments
      • Finalized form check boxes
      • Tested new audit form with recent auditees
      • Took tool and guides back to focus group participants for comments and suggestions
    • Issues still out there…
      • Position not upgraded after audit – position was correctly classified; is not a reflection on the person in the position
      • Is not a ‘template’ for a level 4 or level 5 – positions vary too much across campus
      • Difficult to separate person from the position
      • Need to use tool to evaluate postings to ensure consistency
    • Final Products
      • Pre-audit information
      • Office Professional Audit Form (Microsoft Word ® document with check and text boxes – can be saved)
      • Office Professional Audit Form Guide
      • Supervisor Guide
      • All will be available on web
