Recognising that workload is just one of the many issues that can affect staff, the Human Resources department has been working to develop and implement a number of new policies and processes to support colleagues, whilst responding to the significant financial constraints that the impact of COVID-19 has presented.
The unavoidable uncertainty that the pandemic presents us with can be very difficult to cope with, and it is important that colleagues have an opportunity to ask any questions that they wish.
Director of Human Resources, Jaspal Kaur and Pro Vice-Chancellor for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and People, Professor Sarah Sharples are therefore running a series of staff engagement meetings with teams across the University to focus on “COVID-19 Recovery and our People.”
These sessions will provide teams with an update on work that has taken place so far and, most importantly, allow for discussions that will help us all look forward and ensure that we can reflect any learnings on agile working, flexibility, and support for staff.
Look out for your invitation to one of these sessions over the coming weeks.
