In July 2009, the NCDOC Personnel Office and the DOC Management Information Office were already working together to develop a Performance Appraisal tracking system The Personnel Office asked if MIS could help in any way to help manage the logistics of the Reduction In Force (RIF) Process needed to handle the large staff reductions.
Goals Assist with identification of impacted employees Homogenize Creditable Service Manage/Generate notification letters and documentation Track available position vacancies Help match employees with appropriate vacancies Assist with OSP and EEO reporting
Challenges Time - Less than 2 months until the first prison was set to be closed Knowledge - Learning Curve for MIS Data - Information dispersion Risk – No tolerance for error
Phase I Identification, Notification & Standardization 1 st RIF impacted 9 employees and was done manually Personnel staff and MIS programmers worked very closely to learn and document business processes MIS started process to take monthly snapshots of each employee’s creditable service MIS began work on Phase I of application to integrate Beacon and DOC Employee Data
Batching Create logical grouping for employees and select the Creditable Service Date
Add staff to Batch Select appropriate staff for each RIF Batch
Phase II Position Management In addition to personnel reductions, many vacant positions were being abolished in the RIF In some cases new positions were being created to deal with changing needs Regular hiring and planned retirements continued to impact position availability This information was not readily available through Beacon Various personnel sections needed to share this information effectively Phase II allowed users to collaborate and share information securely and quickly
Phase III Staff Placement Process staff efficiently and in order of seniority Dynamically combine pay grade, location and job skills data with employee preferences to find the best match As each employee is offered a position, need to remove that position from pool Generate documentation Allow work to be completed on-site in real-time
Staff Reassignment Process ‘The Lottery’ Ability to combine multiple batches that share a common RIF date
Schedule conferences with the affected staff in order of seniority
Meet with individual staff to discuss options and make assignments
Phase IV Reporting Ability to produce management reports throughout RIF process Ability to track employee notification process and acceptance Allow EEO to evaluate RIF placements and identify disproportional adverse impact
Allows Equal Employment Opportunity office to compare the racial, gender and age demographics of RIF employees against the DOC’s overall employee data. Data is also broken down by the employees who were successfully placed and those who were not. Data by Race
Lessons Learned Be prepared. Current budget projections indicate that RIFs will be likely in the future. Identify where the data is held and consolidate and integrate whenever possible. Communicate.
Most Importantly This is a personnel process, not a mechanical process. The ultimate goal is to give Personnel professionals the maximum time and information possible to get the best outcome for each individual.
