|As ever an interesting week; lots going on and much more to be done.
It will be no surprise that I am reflecting on a week when major announcements about the Time for Change programme, created to address our organisational design issues and the need for a workforce change to secure $20M recurrent savings, were published from my office with the approval of UNE Council.
I have made presentations this week to over 1200 staff and drafted answers to over 200 questions posted on the Zoom work board. I hope that in committing to be open and transparent about the need for change, I continue to meet the commitment I made when I joined UNE around the sharing of information. It is important that the UNE community is appropriately informed to enable our staff and students to contribute to the decision making process when their voice needs to be present. Going forward my time will be spent meeting with individual faculties and divisions to explain the Time for Changeprogramme in more detail. Another focus is managing the release of the EOI documents to support the voluntary redundancy part of the workforce redesign process.
