Flexible Workplace Planning and Resources

Flexible Workplace Series

During the month of June, we’re going to meet with managers three times to provide the information needed in order to successfully prepare for the campus shift back to in-person activity. The Managers' Forums on June 1, 15, and 29 will be recorded and included on this page dedicated to helping you successfully navigate this change. 

This is a special three-part training series. Toolkits, guides, and additional resources will be released in tandem with each Managers' Forum. Once we wrap up the series, there will be three supplemental e-learnings to help drive your success with the campus default back to predominantly in-person operations. We ask that you stick with us on this learning journey; we’re in this together!

Guide to Managing Remote Employees

As a manager, it is up to you to create the conditions that allow your team to do their best work, and to have the most job satisfaction possible. At the same time, you also have to take care of yourself. The purpose of this guide is to prepare you for the challenges we now face, both as individuals and as leaders.
