On Staff Impacted by the Trammell Crow Agreement
As we plan for the transition of facilities management responsibility to Trammell Crow, our primary goal has been to ensure the income protection and benefits coverage of the staff who are impacted by the agreement. The following is a partial list of economic and service benefits for staff who transfer to Trammell Crow and remain on the Penn account:
The University has provided detailed information on benefits to all University staff impacted by this transition. We are also moving forward with preparation for the job interviews:
We anticipate that Trammell Crow will make job offers on December 8 to a significant majority of the staff. For those not offered a position, the University will provide the Position Discontinuation and Staff Transition support which includes pay continuation as well as inplacement and outplacement services. PDST will also be available to staff who choose not to interview with Trammell Crow, or who receive job offers but choose not to accept.
This time of change is difficult, not only to the staff affected by the Trammell Crow agreement, but to the overall community. It is our commitment to focus foremost on the well being of the impacted staff, and to communicate broadly as we move forward in our negotiations with Trammell Crow.
