Your Help Needed: Tell Us How We Can Improve the HR Website

We are starting a year-long process to update and expand the HR website, and we are asking key users of HR services to help us by filling out a quick survey on how you use the HR site, and what we could add to make the site more user-friendly and useful to you.

The survey is available at https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_25Cp2jYtEHKIIm1 until March 2, 2018.

If you have any questions, or if you would prefer to share your thoughts in person, please contact HR Communications at communications@hr.ubc.ca. If you have already completed the survey, we thank you.

By working together, we can all help to end bullying in schools and in the workplace.

At UBC, we strive to provide a safe, respectful and productive environment for our faculty, staff and students. The UBC Respectful Environment Statement outlines our principles as we work to create a respectful environment for all.

The Respectful Environment statement of principle:

The best possible environment for working, learning and living is one in which respect, civility, diversity, opportunity and inclusion are valued. Everyone at the University of British Columbia is expected to conduct themselves in a manner that upholds these principles in all communications and interactions with fellow UBC community members and the public in all University-related settings.

Read the full statement.

One of UBC’s initiatives to support a respectful environment is the Bullying and Harassment Prevention website. The website has information for UBC faculty, staff and student employees to support a respectful and positive work environment.

The UBC community works together every day to build a respectful environment for all. On Feb. 28, wear pink to show your support for an end to bullying and harassment.
