UC VALUES – Last set of workshops to have your say

Kia ora colleagues

A desire to co-create Organisational Values for UC came through strongly in the focus groups and other feedback mechanisms in the Strategy development process.  So far 61 staff have participated in the three workshops that have been run – 18 Academic staff and 43 Professional Staff.

I’ve already promoted two more workshops and I’ve now scheduled more so you have six further opportunities to engage face to face with staff from across UC . These are listed below. Email me directly to book your place.

Why have Organisational Values? 

They:

  • remind us of what we stand for
  • provide a roadmap for work and behaviour
  • help us make the right decisions
  • create the context to allow for alignment between people, systems, processes, structure, leadership and culture
  • provide a measure for “organisational fit” for prospective staff (and students).

Opportunities to participate:

  • Thursday 29 October 1 to 2.30pm
  • Monday 02 November 10 to 11.30am
  • Tuesday 10/11, 2.30 to 4pm
  • Tuesday 17/11, 2 to 3.30pm
  • Wednesday 18/11, 10.30am to 12 noon
  • Thursday 19/11, 1 to 2.30pm

UC Values – staff co-creation workshops in October

Kia ora colleagues

A desire to co-create Organisational Values for UC came through strongly in the focus groups and other feedback mechanisms in the Strategy development process.

Two alternative times providing an opportunity for you to participate in this co-creation are available next month:

  • Friday 02 October 10.30 to 12 noon OR
  • Friday 09 October 1.30 to 3pm.

The sessions will include a short introduction to Organisational Values and the context and benefits of Values to an organisation and its staff. We’ll then take you through an exercise to identify concepts that are important to us as an organisation. Your conclusions will be added to those from other staff workshops as part of the process to identify 3 or 4 core UC Values and the behaviours that are the Values translated into day-to-day actions.

If you wish to participate in either of these sessions please email me  by  29 September. Indicate which date and time suits you and I will then send you an invitation with details. If you are unable to make these options but are interested in further sessions, let me know.

Please pass on this information to your colleagues. Thank you.
