Prong 3 from January 22, 2019 to January 21, 2021 Outreach and Recruitment – 2 initiatives within a two-year period

Initiative 1
Establishment of an internship program designed to assist members of our community in acquiring the skills that are necessary for employment in radio broadcasting.

KVNO typically offers both paid and unpaid part-time internship positions to qualified applicants in membership/development, fundraising and underwriting, on-air announcing, audio production editing, music library management, and broadcast news reporting. These internships generally last for one semester but can be renewed or extended at the discretion of KVNO management.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions on the campus of the University of Nebraska at Omaha, KVNO was unable to sponsor interns on a regular basis.  We are currently working on opening up the application process for interns for both the spring and fall semesters of 2021.

Initiative 2
When speaking to a group or giving a tour of the studio, KVNO Managers take the opportunity to include the following:   “The University of Nebraska at Omaha and KVNO are equal opportunity employers.  Job opportunities at KVNO are posted on KVNO’s website.  Please visit KVNO.org for information.

KVNO participates in community events and offers public tours of KVNO studios and operations to interested civic organizations and individuals in the community.  During these events, participants are notified that KVNO is an equal opportunity employer and anyone interested in employment at KVNO will find open jobs posted on our website or on the University Employment website.  When speaking to local community groups, KVNO staff members are instructed to include a mention that KVNO is an equal employment opportunity employer and all job vacancies at KVNO are posted on our website or on the university employment website. KVNO also has a portable display booth that we set up at concert events, art fairs, performance venues, etc., and employment and EEO information is posted on the display.  KVNO was unable to conduct Classical Kids tours and visit schools most of this year due to the pandemic; however, we did record remote interviews with each of them and sent their certificates and gifts.

All KVNO Managers and other full-time staff employees are eligible for college tuition reimbursement and are encouraged to further their education in order to broaden their horizons, learn new skills, update old skills, and be in a better position for job advancement opportunities when they arise. Many staff members have taken advantage of this opportunity.  All are encouraged to do so.

The KVNO General Manager attended the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication Conference, August 5-8, 2020 (virtual).  The General Manager was a presenter on a panel titled “Telling Lies in America: Are Today’s Journalists Watchdogs, Lapdogs, or Something Else?”

All full-time staff at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) is encouraged to participate in the Re-imagining U courses that are now offered on campus in conjunction with UNMC.

KVNO management makes every effort to modify employee work schedules to accommodate and promote the furthering of our employees’ education.  KVNO managers also attend offsite, onsite and online training seminars that are related to their area of expertise and to gain knowledge in related areas that benefit the organization at large.

All KVNO employees have earned certification as completing Title IX Sexual Harassment training classes provided by UNO’s Office of Diversity, Equity, Access and Inclusion.  A Corporation for Public Broadcasting stipulation requires all KVNO staff members (full and part-time), student workers and unpaid interns complete this training on a yearly basis.  The University requires all employees and students complete this training every two years.

 

Initiative 4
Provision of training to management level personnel as to methods of ensuring equal employment opportunity and preventing discrimination.
KVNO managers are encouraged to attend meetings and seminars on campus that are sponsored by the university on issues relating to updated Title IX enforcement provisions, identifying and eliminating discrimination of all kinds in the workplace, as well as issues related to workplace/domestic violence and regulatory updates relative to the Americans with Disabilities Act.
UNO Supervisory training is now included in the Re-Imaging U courses now offered on campus in conjunction with UNMC.

Steps for Recruitment and Hiring to Comply with the FCC’s EEO Rules and Policies for KVNO-FM.
Adoption of Program, Outreach and Prong One.
1. A job description must be created. Use forms to assist in the preparation of a job description. The KVNO hiring manager may also contact Lolita Schumacher, Manager, Payroll, Compensation and Records at 402.554.2739.
An approved job description is necessary for the position to be classified and a salary range developed. The job description and classification must be done before a job requisition can be prepared and a job posted.
Once the classification information is received by the KVNO Assistant General Manager, factors in making final salary decisions include: budget constraints, internal equity, market relevance, and internal value of the position, within KVNO and UNO.
2. After the position is classified, the designated KVNO hiring manager should submit a requisition for the position. Contact Employment at 402.554.3668 in Human Resources for further instructions on how to create a job posting in PeopleAdmin or download the PeopleAdmin User Guide.
3. A position may be posted for recruitment in one of three ways:

  1. External – open to everyone, both University and non-University applicants. Most positions are posted external.
  2. University employees only (requires Employment approval) – the position would be open to all University employees, including those from University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the University of Nebraska at Kearney, the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and Central Administration.
  3. Department Only (requires Employment approval) – a search may be limited to those within the department who are current regular part-time or full time employees hired through the regular UNO competitive search process (not a temporary employee).

4.  The Employment Specialist will post the position after cabinet approval.  All office/service and managerial/professional positions will be posted for a minimum of seven calendar days.
All open positions are posted on the UNO website and the State Employment website, NEWorks.  For any additional advertising of the position, the KVNO hiring manager will let the UNO Employment Office know. The Employment Office is responsible for posting all formal advertisements (ads) that do not require a professional association membership.  The Employment Office will issue Ad Copy for KVNO’s use in placing ads on websites used by professional associations and social media platforms. All Full Time Open Positions at KVNO are advertised in national and regional publications or websites to ensure the broadest possible outreach. KVNO is responsible for all advertising expenses.
5. All applicants, both internal and external, will be instructed to apply through the UNO Employment site unomaha.peopleadmin.com. The Office of Human Resources in Room 205 of the Eppley Administration Building has computers for applicants to use and will assist applicants with the process if necessary.
6. All applications are screened. Those who meet the minimum requirements will be forwarded to the KVNO hiring manager via PeopleAdmin. Those applicants not meeting the minimum qualifications for the job are notified via PeopleAdmin immediately.
KVNO is responsible for reviewing the referred candidates and selecting those to be interviewed. Contact the Employment Specialist, at 402.554.3668 if you do not find a suitable candidate after interviewing from the referred applicants. The request should include reasons why the candidates initially referred were not acceptable.
A KVNO search committee is required for Senior Level Managerial/Professional positions and strongly recommended for all other positions. All search committee members will need to attend search committee training.  The Employment Specialist, at 402.554.3668 can assist you with giving access for the KVNO search committee to see applications.  Each search must have four finalists for interviews.
7. The KVNO hiring unit may request that the position be re-posted and re-advertised if a suitable candidate is not found out of the initial pool of candidates referred, or if the job requirements change. Contact the Employment Office for assistance with this process.
8. After identifying the candidates the KVNO Hiring Committee would like to interview, move them in the workflow to “Request for Interview.” This list of names will go to the EAD Officer.  Once this list is approved, the KVNO Search Chair/Manager (if one is listed) will receive a system generated email.
9. Once interviews are completed, KVNO should conduct reference checks of the top two candidates’ current and previous employers.  Prior to contacting references, please let the candidate know you plan to make the calls.  This allows the candidate time to alert the reference to expect the call.  Conducting reference checks with supervisors of current and former UNO employees is strongly recommended. It is important to be consistent in conducting all reference checks.

 

10. Prior to making an offer of employment, the KVNO hiring manager will email unemployment@unomaha.edu interview summary notes and reference check notes. An offer should not be made until the Employment Office has approved the summary notes and received the reference notes.  At the time of summary note approval, the posting will be closed to further applicants.
If the verbal offer is accepted, initiate background checks. The KVNO hiring manager sends the candidate the link to access the background check form. Ensure the candidate understands that the verbal offer is contingent on the background check being returned in good standing. Background checks must be performed on all new hires and all internal to UNO hires whose last background check at UNO is more than 12 months old.  Contact HR for the background check information if needed: 402.554.3668.
After the background check is completed, if other testing is required for the position, initiate said testing.  KVNO’s hiring manager will be notified by the Employment Office when final hiring is approved. At that time, the KVNO hiring manager will send the applicant the official offer letter using UNO’s official hiring templates.
11. Contact Human Resources once the posting should be closed. Postings can be closed before the position is filled if the hiring manager feels that they have an adequate pool of applicants and feels confident that a hire can be made from said pool.
The KVNO hiring manager will disposition all applicants to their appropriate workflow throughout the hiring process.  Applicants who applied to the position and/or participated in the interviewing process need to receive notification that the position has been filled via PeopleAdmin within 30 days of the hire being made.
Contact The Employment Specialist, at 402.554.3668 if you have questions.
12. All newly hired regular employees (Office/Service and Managerial/Professional) must serve a six-month original probationary period. This probationary period is an extension of the selection process and is used to determine an employee’s suitability for UNO employment.
13. KVNO will complete the following and submit to the Office of Human Resources:
The following employment documentation must be completed accurately at least 48 hours* (weekends not included) in advance of the first day of employment:

  • Personnel Action Form (PAF)
  • Personnel Data Form (PDF)
  • Copies of Offer Letter and Acceptance
  • I-9 Form
  • E-Verify
  • Direct Deposit Form
  • Federal W-4 Form
  • Nebraska W-4N Form
  • Self-Identification of Disability
  • Veteran Self ID Post Offer
  • UNO Policy Acknowledgement
  • UNO Security Agreement
  • NU Confidentiality Non-Disclosure Information Security Agreement

Failure to do so will result in delay of many essential services for new employees, including but not limited to obtaining their MavCard on the first workday, which allows physical access and parking.  One of HR’s primary focuses is to ensure that all new employees have the best possible on-boarding experience possible.  This starts with the timely submission of accurate employment information and will require some advance planning on KVNO’s part.  Please use the following resource: https://www.unomaha.edu/human-resources/managers-and-supervisors/index.php *Note: intra-campus transfers and rehires may require greater than 48 hours.
If the employee is new to UNO, he/she should meet with Human Resources to arrange benefits.
14. All materials pertaining to the recruitment process must be maintained within the department official files for a period of four years starting from the successful candidate’s start date. These materials will be important to KVNO in the event KVNO has to respond to any legal action or inquiry in connection with the hiring process.

Prong Two.
KVNO will notify referral organizations on file that have requested information on job vacancies of each full time employment opportunity at KVNO. Requests must be made in writing and include the necessary contact and forwarding information for verification purposes. These requests must be mailed or forwarded to the attention of KVNO Business Manager, KVNO Radio, CPACS 200, 6001 Dodge Street, Omaha Nebraska 68182.  KVNO Management will also reach out to existing recruitment organizations in the community.
