The decision to implement an integrated facilities plan is one that will not only be felt by faculty, administrators, and students, but also by existing support service staff. Our most important assets are the people that work hard daily to ensure that our client institutions are safe and students are given the best opportunity to thrive. Yet, there is often a fear that bringing in an outside company means the existing staff will be laid off and replaced with a new team, creating a public relations nightmare and an outcry from the communities you serve. This fear is based on the myths and negative connotations that tend to surround the term “outsourcing.” While this fear is understandable, it’s also unfounded, and can keep you from not only furthering your educational initiatives, but giving your students and staff the best opportunity for success.
SSC makes a smooth transition of existing employees central to the way we do business. Our managers value the facility knowledge, tenure, and relationships of current employees, and preserving continuity through change depends on the support and cooperation of these critical contributors. We have every desire to keep the same productive employees our clients have come to know over the years, as we believe they can best help managers and administrators meet the goals set.
