UI Staff Council discusses new human resource plan


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A University of Iowa Staff Council Human Resources subcommittee proposed a new strategy to improve staff access to resources at their meeting on Wednesday.

This strategy would require staff councilors to request information from other staff members, using a “guided conversation structure” to identify potential areas of improvement.

The structured questions would address situations in which staff members feel vulnerable or are unsure which steps to take.

The subcommittee would use the information to form ideas for new types of support. Ultimately, the staff council hopes to assist individuals with issues in their office that need help resolving problems and figuring out policies.

This initiative comes in the wake of the previous plan — the Peer Support Network  — being suspended after discovering that online resources may be difficult to identify.
