One-Time Extension for Corporate Responsibility
Education due to Technical Issues
Action: Complete training by June 15
Due to technical difficulties that some employees are experiencing in viewing videos in the CHI Information Privacy and Security Awareness course that is part of the FY 2013 Annual CRP Education, CHI is granting a one-time, 30-day extension to complete the assignment. Course completions must be registered in LEARN by 11:59 p.m. ET on June 15.
Completions of either required course registered after May 15 will be recorded as “completed late” on employee transcripts and completion reports generated by LEARN. Any employee who does not complete the education by the deadline will be subject to possible corrective action per the Mandatory Education section of the CHI Requirements for Employment policy (the policy is available in the My Handbook section of HR/Payroll Connection).
Some employees have encountered technical issues when trying to play videos in the Privacy and Security Awareness course. In some cases, clicking the “previous screen arrow” (in the bottom right corner of the screen) and returning to the video screen will result in the video loading and playing properly.
For more information about required CRP Annual Education, contact Dan Morrissey. Any technical issues with the training should be reported to the LEARN team.
Lofton on "Most Influential" Ballot
Action: Vote for most influential people in health care

Voting runs through June 14, and the final list will be in the magazine’s August 26 issue. Vote for this year’s ranking; note that each voter must vote for five leaders on the ballot.
Important Information for iPhone 5 Users
Action: Keep devices up to date; upgrade to Apple iOS 6.1.4
Apple recently released iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5. This update changes the speakerphone audio profile. CHI Information Technology Services (ITS) recommends that users upgrade to this version.
ITS has determined that some Outlook email outages and access problems are caused by iPhones and iPads that are operating on iOS 6.1.1. A bug in iOS 6.1.1 causes the server to overload and makes it unavailable. Devices currently operating on iOS 6.1.1 should be immediately upgraded to 6.1.4.
ITS recommends that users back up their devices by syncing them with iTunes before performing the update. After syncing the device with iTunes, users can update it there or wirelessly. To update wirelessly, select the “Settings” application and the “General” settings category, then “Software Update.” The device will check that the update is available and, if so, will prompt the user to download and install the update. Users should also encrypt their iOS backups to prevent unauthorized access to information stored on their devices.

Pay Period Sign-Off for Memorial Day Holiday
To prepare for the Memorial Day holiday, which CHI will observe on May 27:
• On Friday, May 24, managers should review their
employees’ time records to ensure all records are
correct. If edits are needed, managers should perform
the edits before leaving the office on May 24.
• For employees who are scheduled to work on Saturday,
May 25 (the last day of the pay period), managers should
provide the local superuser/timekeeper with the
expected work schedules (if schedules are not already
populated in Kronos) so the appropriate review can be
conducted before signoff on May 27.
• The superuser/timekeeper (or other designated
representative) will perform the required time record
signoff on Monday, May 27.
• On Tuesday, May 28 (or the first day back after the
holiday), managers should validate that the time records
approved by the superuser/timekeeper were accurate. If
corrections are needed, the manager should notify the
Pay corrections submitted by 2 p.m. ET on May 28, will be processed with the regular pay cycle. Corrections received after 2 p.m. ET will be addressed in the next regular pay cycle or the next off-cycle, depending on the specific issue.
