BERT: Designed for and accessible only by Capital Region BOCES employees

BERT the Owl

10.03.16 — With the majority of Capital Region BOCES employees logged in and using the BOCES Employee Resource Tool (BERT), the next phase in our intranet rollout involves moving employee specific documents off the public facing website.

Therefore the Staff Resources page and various forms have been removed from the CRB website and made available exclusively on BERT.

To those not yet familiar with BERT, in addition to providing one-stop access to all of the information and tools you need to do your job more efficiently and effectively, part of the idea behind BERT is to help strengthen the sense of community across BOCES. Get started by uploading your photo, adding your areas of expertise/skills and more information about yourself on your employee profile page. This will finally help all of us better connect names with faces across the organization.

FUTURE trainings

A number of BERT Introduction/Overview sessions took place throughout the summer and early fall. Attendees were taken on a tour of BERT, given an opportunity to ask questions and a chance to receive guidance on setting up their employee profiles.

Additional training dates and professional photo opportunities will be announced, where else, on BERT!

If you have any questions or concerns, email or call 518-862-5400.
