Earlier this year, the UC Intelligent Automation team in partnership with People and Culture introduced Rosie – a Robotic Assistant who provides timely automated notifications to staff and managers regarding employment-related events. You may have seen an email come through from Rosie already.
Starting this week, Rosie will begin sending out notifications of excess annual leave to keep you informed and enable you to manage your annual leave balance. As you may recall, staff have been asked to have annual leave plans in place for 2021, which has been extended to 31 January 2022 to allow for the summer break. We have had a significant response from staff in managing their excess leave this year, which has had a very positive impact on the University (for both staff wellbeing and financial implications), and the automated emails are a reminder to enable us to continue to encourage and manage annual leave and leave liability effectively.
With the feedback received to date, we understand that the emails from Rosie may look like spam mail. However, you’ll be able to tell if an email is from Rosie according to the email signature which will be “Rosie – Robotic Assistant on behalf of the People and Culture Team”. The People and Culture team are available to assist with any specific queries you may have regarding Rosie or any communication generated from Rosie.
