|Your views on Kent as a place to work - 20 November 2017|
Schools and departments in the third phase of the University's annual staff surveys are being invited to share their views of Kent as a place to work from Monday 20 November.
If you are part of this phase you will have received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the online survey. This is a chance for you to give feedback about what your working environment is like now and what needs to be done so that it develops in a positive way that enables you to do your best. Responses will be entirely anonymous and we have made the survey deliberately short so you will find it quick to complete (5-10 minutes).
|Support for employees who are terminally ill - 16 August 2017|
At the University of Kent we have a long standing practice of doing our utmost to support colleagues who are terminally ill. We all recognise the vital role that work can play in establishing some normality, security and social support when colleagues and their families have to face the challenges and difficult decisions raised at this time.
We wish to announce that the University has signed the TUC’s Dying to Work Charter and will offer enhanced protection to employees who are diagnosed as terminally ill. Further information on the Charter and what this means for employees can be found here.
|Job Evaluation - 10 August 2017|
From 1 September 2017, the University will be using the Hay Framework to evaluate all jobs except academic and research roles; these roles are covered by the National Role Profiles and are not affected.
Presentations on the new job evaluation framework will be held in August and September. Presentations are aimed at managers but staff are welcome. Please register your intention to attend by visiting the Job Evaluation webpage.
