Extend Empathy and Compassion to Others

November 03, 2020
Our resilience has been tested this year and while we continually adjust to new challenges, we must remember the importance of extending empathy and compassion to others.

Race Matters

June 29, 2020
As human resources professionals, we are called upon daily to address complex, sometimes emotional and oftentimes uncomfortable circumstances. Just like we did with the other pandemic, we must respond to and give guidance to help root out systemic racism and bias.

Layoffs as Last Resort

June 22, 2020
Our philosophy will be to use indefinite layoffs as the tool of last resort to address COVID-19 related fiscal challenges. 

Care for Yourselves and Your Teams

June 02, 2020
Life and death matters are transpiring in the United States today, on top of the COVID-19 pandemic. At UC Davis, the physical, mental and emotional health of our employees, students and patients must always be a priority.

Think Creatively for Student Employees
