Staff Room — new internal communications channel now live

May 13th, 2019

A new channel highlighting news, information and key links and services for staff has been launched.

Staff Room replaces In the Loop as the landing page for staff, highlighting key news and events, colleague and student successes, and updates to systems and services affecting our UK campuses.

The page, which was developed following staff consultation, also brings together links to commonly used systems and services – including HR services, IS systems, Campus Solutions, the Research Information System, policy documents and email.

Colleagues took part in surveys, focus groups and testing to help develop the site, which is now the default launch page in staff browsers. If you’ve set your own homepage, Staff Room won’t replace it, but you can add the page with this link:

Now that Staff Room is live, In the Loop has been retired. Feedback from staff told us that the pop-up format was not popular, and the format wasn’t clear. The way we work and technology has changed since In the Loop was introduced, and many staff didn’t see the platform every time they started work. Staff Room is designed to be an improvement to this experience, and to be more accessible.

To share your news and events on Staff Room, or our other internal communications channels for staff and students, contact the Internal Communications Team.
