Congrats to us! Whiria te Taura Tangata #9

Kia ora koutou!

Recognition UC has been recognised in the Association for Tertiary Education Management (ATEM*) 2018 Best Practice Awards in Perth last week – our Organisational Culture Development Programme won the Highly Commended place in the AHEIA award for People and Culture.

We deliberately did not nominate an individual or team as the success of this mahi needs everyone’s commitment and contribution from all – so it was entered as a whole-of-University initiative.

Paul O’Flaherty, Executive Director of HR | Kaihautū Matua Pūmanawa Tangata, was able to kōrero his thanks via video. Thank you to ATEM for this recognition and …. well done us!

*ATEM is the pre-eminent professional body in Australasia for tertiary education administrators and managers.

Blue CLUES: Problem Solving Circles Thank you to the College of Education, Health and Human Development for hosting the sessions we ran on Problem Solving Circles. There was excellent participation with 88 attendees across the four sessions. A video about effective problem solving and decision-making was made for this session (YouTube, 7.45mins).
