HR Survey on sick leave banks and pools coming soon

HR Services’ customer survey results are in

HR Services would like to thank the 500 districts that responded to our customer survey in December. We heard loud and clear that our districts want more news on benefits and compensation, more training on legal issues, and more benchmark data on district staffing. We also heard that many of you want more information (of all sorts!) regarding substitutes. We’re glad to hear how we’re doing and how we can improve to better serve our members.
