New Inclement Weather Pay Code in ADP

Attention ADP Supervisors:

We have created a new Pay Code in ADP: Inclement Weather. Please use this code when entering missed time for your employees due to the snow this week.

For this past Wednesday, Jan. 17, please use this code to enter the normal number of hours your employee should have worked that day (ie. full-time = 7.5 hours, part-time would be based on their normal schedule).

For Thursday, Jan. 18, enter up to one hour for inclement weather. However, the total number of hours (inclement + actual hours worked) should not exceed their normal work schedule.

Please contact Angie Graham at agraham2@brenau.edu with questions.

Wellness Participation Cash Prize

Brenau’s Wellness Program, funded by Cigna, is designed to support healthy behavior in the workplace and to improve health outcomes. Our program includes activities during the year that relate to being physically, mentally, financially and emotionally healthy.

Employees receive points for each activity or program they participate in. Points are added to the Activity Tracker, maintained by Human Resources, and are used to determine recipients for periodic special awards. During the open enrollment meeting in November, a name will be drawn from those who have accumulated Activity Tracker points; the more points you accumulate, the greater chance you have of winning the cash prize.

Salaried employees who donate to Campus Campaign via payroll deduction: Due to a technical error during open enrollment, campus campaign contribution were not deducted on the salary payroll for the first payroll of 2018 (1/12/18). In order to rectify this error, a double deduction will be taken from the 1/26/18 salaried payroll. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We truly appreciate your continued contribution.
