The Office of Human Resources is pleased to offer Zoom office hours for staff and faculty as an opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback and receive information on a variety of topics. Throughout the month of October, we will offer a chance to see what the Workday experience looks like and what tasks you can do in the new system during the OHR Office Hours.
The second half of the hour will be open for general OHR Office Hours. We will engage in a conversation about workplace developments and communication highlights, and will offer group discussion or private consultation in break-out rooms with HR Representatives.
Please see the OHR Newsletter or the Daily Mammoth for the Zoom link. You can also contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the access information.
We look forward to connecting with you!
