Mobilising the potential contained within the staff base is vital for successfully implementing college and university policies. Equally, individual staff members need to be recognised as the innovators and change agents that are found at the heart of every aspect of institutional activity. A university or college needs to maximise the opportunities offered by formal HR processes, as well as encouraging broader engagement by the staff to achieve sustainable development.
If you would like to connect with other EAUC members interested in staff-related behaviour change, join the EAUC's Embedding Positive Attitudes and Behaviours Community of Practice. This group is for EAUC members only. Find out more.
EAUC-Scotland's Community Engagement Topic Support Network (TSN) is open to all, providing an opportunity for those working in or with the further and higher education sector to share ideas and questions and to get together to hear from particular speakers or discuss topics of interest. Find out more about the TSNs here.
