“WhatsApp with That? A Closer Look at How Technology Can Assist Us with Our Team and Animal Care Goals” – Scott Trauger (Supervisor, NEI) Technology has changed the way we communicate. In our field, possibly more than others, we still rely on actual physical communication to facilitate our jobs. What if there is a way to keep that personal connection while still allowing us to achieve animal-based goals with a better antecedent arrangement? At NEI, we have decided to embrace the future and find new ways to help us achieve our goals using current technology. This talk will look at the specific tools and scenarios in which these technological applications have been beneficial for NEI to pursue our communication and animal care goals. “Growing Beyond a Traditional Staff Evaluation Process” – Chris Jenkins (COO, NEI) About 5 years ago, NEI embarked on a journey of reevaluating our core priorities and renewing our commitment to the values that the company was founded on. Part of this was a decision to eliminate an inefficient, inconsistent, and sometimes punitive annual evaluation process. This talk dives into the problems the old process caused, as well as the new practices we put into place to replace it in our ongoing journey to create something more supportive, goal-focused, and collaborative.
