Remote Work and Faculty Affairs
It has been more than one year since offices and universities sent staff, faculty, and students home, turning our homes into makeshift gyms, mock classrooms, and pseudo-conference rooms. There is no doubt that COVID-19 has impacted everything we do and it looks like remote work and many classes are here to stay for a little bit longer—with some even saying until the fall 2021 semester.
Here are some questions for you:
- Is your organization back to work yet?
- Will fall be normal on your campus?
- How will it be different? Will there be hybrid classes?
It’s tough to keep a good handle on the state of things. While the vaccination program is beginning to protect millions of people, the baseline of infections is still very high, and new variants threaten to make things worse again.
With this in mind, every aspect of college business is being reevaluated – including faculty affairs and human resources (HR). Mountain Pass Solutions is happy to be able to play a part in keeping FA productive even while everybody is working remotely. We know that departments like faculty affairs and HR are constantly inundated with paperwork to manage faculty in the various stages of employment. That’s where SmartPath, a software management program from Mountain Pass, comes in—transforming these traditionally labor-intensive, paper-based processes into a super-efficient operation that saves tons of time and energy.
