The university’s efforts to have all faculty members, officers of administration, classified employees and graduate employees complete the updated web-based workplace harassment and discrimination prevention training by the end of spring term was met with broad success.
“We are excited to report that the total employee completion rate for all of campus so far is 92 percent, with several units achieving 100 percent completion,” said Kaia Rogers, senior director for HR programs, services and strategic initiatives. “We deeply appreciate the collective leadership of supervisors and unit HR representatives, and the responsiveness of employees that made this success possible.”
The Office of Human Resources will continue to work with unit leaders and supervisors to reach full completion across all units. Faculty and staff members who have not taken the mandatory training should do so as soon as possible. The web-based workplace harassment and discrimination prevention training remains available through MyTrack.
As part of a continued effort to reinforce the university’s commitment to providing a work environment free from discrimination and harassment and promoting a respectful workplace, faculty members, officers of administration, classified employees and graduate employees are required to complete the training every two years throughout their employment. Those newly hired to the university are required to complete the training within 90 days of employment.
“Although the online training provides key concepts in ensuring a safe and welcoming environment, employees should continue to seek out additional training opportunities to reinforce these principles,” said Tiffany Ray, HR compliance and training officer.
Additional in-person trainings are available to further educate the campus community.
