Help Build the Quick Response Team

Wednesday, September 16, 2020

In August we shared an example of our Talent Sharing program in action. We continue to see success with team members supporting departments within their division and across the College. With the start of the fall term, it brings along a need for the creation of a Quick Response Team — a special team that will support time-sensitive, short-term activities and projects to benefit our students.

Although we don’t know exactly what every need will be at this time, we will build this team of employees who may have capacity to support these last-minute needs with 48-72 hours of notice. As a supervisor, we’d love your help to build this Quick Response Team.

How Will the Quick Response Team Work?

As urgent projects arise, a member of the Organizational Development and Human Resources team will reach out to those on the Quick Response team for assistance. If the members have availability at the time, they must respond within 48 hours to be considered for the project.

Participants will work at the current rate of pay. No additional compensation will be given.

Since this is a temporary, short-term assignment, employees will continue reporting to their current supervisor in the system.

As a Supervisor, How Can I Help Build the Team?

Please think critically about the current workload of each member on your team and determine if any employees have capacity to take on other projects? If a member of your team does have capacity, please connect with him or her to discuss this call for support before submitting the name.

If the employee agrees to participating in the Quick Response Team, please email Talent Sharing Program Coordinator and Assistant Director, Conferencing and College Events Camille Hernandez at with the name and email address of the team member. Camille will connect directly with the employee to learn more about his or her availability and work preferences.

For questions, contact Camille at the email address above or 407-299-5000, extension 5786.
