What is PIB?

PIB is a site-based employee committee representing Pearson Curriculum Group and FEN employees. It functions as a clearinghouse for employee ideas and feedback, in addition to coordinating professional development and boosting employee morale. The twelve rotating members are volunteers from different departments within the Curriculum Group and FEN. Human Resources and Facilities appoint at-large members to facilitate the group’s work. Volunteers spend two years in PIB.

Have PIB ideas been implemented?

The following ideas began as submissions to PIB:

Ÿ Decorating the Boylston office using employee-created artwork

Ÿ Addition of recycling bins to the Boylston kitchens

Ÿ Boston weekly events newsletter (now expanded to Arlington office)

Ÿ Placement of first aid kits in the kitchens

The ideas are wide-ranging- achieving efficiencies, saving time and money, improving the work enfironment. Sicne the program began in March 1990, many PIB iniatives have become part of our divisional culture.
