Last month’s open forum on the new clinical building was a reminder that as completion of the Sheikh Zayed Tower and The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center moves forward, employees will need to pay closer attention to building progress to ensure a smooth transition into the new facilities. In case you missed that meeting, here’s a quick update: “Activation”—meaning limited access for employees—is slated for August 2011. The new buildings are scheduled for completion in November 2011 and all the patients will be moved in by Jan. 30, 2012, when the buildings will open to the public.

From June 1 through June 21, Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System staff will once again have a chance to give their assessment of the work environment. The voluntary survey, to be administered by the Gallup Organization, will consist of 28 questions on the relationship between employees and the institution. Please plan to participate. Confidentiality will be strictly protected; no one at Hopkins will have access to the individual results. The survey is easy to complete, and employees will be given a secure website to log onto using your eight-digit birth date followed by the last five digits of your social security number.

Employees who use SAP, take note: All SAP systems will be taken offline after normal business hours on May 14 and will be unavailable until the start of business on May 19. Users will be affected by the downtime as no SAP functions will be available—from shopping carts to looking up personnel records and making purchases. During the downtime, if you double-click on the HopkinsOne icon on your desktop or use a bookmark in your browser to access SAP, you’ll receive a message reminding you that SAP is unavailable.
