Human Resources news: Employee Assistance Program, pay slips, training and development opportunities

Employee Assistance Program

The uncertainty and global changes of the past several months have challenged individuals and families in unparalleled ways. We recognize the stressors this produces for everyone. Please remember that the Employee Assistance Program is available to provide confidential, short-term counseling services for benefit eligible employees and their dependents.

Employees do not have to enroll in a medical plan to partake of the services. However, if they are enrolled in a medical plan, they may be able to maximize their benefits by accessing the free services before using behavioral health benefits, which require paying a share of the cost.

For additional information, please visit ogi.idaho.gov/counseling or call (877) 427-2327 (TDD: 800-697-0353).

This week’s pay slips

The pay slips generated this week are using the a default format provided by the university’s technological partner instead of the custom Boise State format.

While the content on this pay slip is correct, the custom Boise State format includes employer paid benefits, which will. not appear on this week’s pay slip. Please disregard the credited state services and probation hours, as well as the absence accruals in the pay slip. Employees who wish to see absence accruals should refer to the instructions for this action in Bronco Hub.

The pay slip format will be changed back to the custom Boise State template for future pay periods. As a reminder, instructions are available for viewing pay slips.
