Professional Development/Work Environment

Workplace Environment

1.   Promote processes for problem resolution.

A communications program is needed to increase supervisor and employee awareness of avenues for problem resolution.   HR should continue to provide training and support to help employees deal with staff who are having a negative impact on the climate of UCAR as an accepting and respectful place to work.

2.   Expand conferencing tools.

The number of meeting rooms with conference capability needs to be increased at each campus to facilitate improved interaction/collaboration among staff.

There needs to be at least one video seminar room per campus that will display seminars presented at other facilities. Employees should be trained to use Web-based conferencing tools in their own offices for meetings of small groups or distributed staff.
