As part of the preparations for the full return to campus, the University is embarking on a process to establish a Flexible Work Arrangements (FWA) program for non-academic staff in areas/units where such arrangements may be operationally feasible.
Flexible work arrangements can support the mental health and wellbeing of employees, improve how work gets done, the services students receive and how teams collaborate. Adopting new ways of working can also enhance job satisfaction and encourage engagement and innovation.
The Flexible Work Arrangements Taskforce has been established to lead the development of a program intended to foster a flexible work culture in support of staff wellbeing. The program development process will include opportunities for staff, students and supervisors to share their thoughts through focus groups, surveys and interviews.
