Every unit and very employee across the university had been impacted the university’s response to COVID-19 in some form or fashion. Regular and ongoing discussions between supervisors and employees is key to adjusting and adapting as the university continues its response to COVID-19.
Both the supervisor and the employee play a role in initiating a conversation about work assignments, work arrangements, and productivity to assess what is going well and what could be better as the employee carries out their responsibilities to accomplish the tasks and functions of their position.
Employees and supervisors are encouraged to reflect and discuss the current situation to address disruption or shifts in job function and work arrangement and to identify necessary adjustments as we continue to navigate this unprecedented time. These conversations will make a meaningful contribution to your next annual review no matter when it takes place.
