Next Gen was proud to sponsor and present to a full room at the 2017 National Student Employment Association (NSEA) Annual Conference in Virginia Beach, VA, October 25-26. Taige Haines (CEO) and Sharon Gessner (Director of IT Product Support) met with more than 200 student employment professionals from across the country.
In a break-out session on Wednesday afternoon, Haines covered the benefits of utilizing technology to more effectively manage a school’s Federal Work Study (FWS), Student employment, and Faculty/Staff employment life-cycle including timesheet tracking and comprehensive compliance services designed to mitigate costly Department of Ed audit fines and penalties.
Two case studies (Berry College and Columbia University) offered real-life examples of how these schools realized considerable process efficiencies resulting in thousands of dollars in cost savings following the implementation of JobX and TimesheetX.
JobX allows supervisors to create online job listings and hire contracts, students to search and apply for jobs online, and administrators to streamline costly manual and paper processes associated with job posting creations/approvals, application management and placements utilizing extensive customization to meet school specific needs, real-time data integration and workflow technology.
TimesheetX allows students, faculty, and staff to submit online timesheets, supervisors to approve online timesheets, and administrators to manage time off/accruals, proactively prevent compliance violations (e.g. not allow FWS students to work during scheduled classes, etc.), and track earnings to prevent over-spend of financial aid and/or departmental budgets.
