Conversations with Staff Council, August 2, 2011
At the August 2, 2011, Conversations with Staff Council event, suggestions included developing a culture of encouragement, an infrastructure for staff recognition, and a sense of community through informal events designed to bring employees together. Attendees proposed improving the communication infrastructure to allow for greater transparency and to defuse the rumor mill. Opportunities and support for professional development were requested and attendees were interested in mentoring programs. Flex time was among the most common suggestions, and employees advocated a work culture change to promote mutual customer service, empowerment, and respect. Attendees also made several cost-saving recommendations, which included selling equipment and furniture and advertising to increase property rental income. Resource conservation tips were provided, such as reducing campus phones, revamping business processes, and developing interdepartmental mechanisms to share shortcuts and best practices.
