SUPPORTING THE CAREGIVERS ON YOUR TEAM

  • Tues, Sept. 1, 11-12:00
  • Thurs, Sept. 3, 1-2:00

Cornell families have been coping with tremendous disruption to their work/life experience since March. Public school closures/delays/odd schedules, supporting learning needs of children, the reduced availability of care programs, health concerns with using care options, limited access to nursing home/aging facilities, closure of special services, and challenging health/safety policies have all contributed to higher stress, anxiety, and fatigue.  As we transition into the next academic year, there are still many unknowns for caregivers. Even with plans in place, they can easily be disrupted by a number of situations.  In this program, we will explore the complexity of these challenges and how to prepare ahead of time for the disruptions that may impact caregiving plans and work.  Learn strategies for evolving how and when work gets done to the betterment of the whole team, and the nuances of various forms of workplace flexibility.

A new workplace landscape

In a few short months, the COVID pandemic has reshaped the way we do work at Cornell. In addition to the challenges we face, we are presented with exciting new opportunities to innovate and rethink our workplace. Much of our success moving forward relies on the resilience and leadership of Cornell's managers/supervisors to inform, motivate, and support our employees as we venture together into this changed environment. 

Human Resources is developing new tools to support you through this period of transition and into a revitalized future.

 

MANAGERS CENTER WEBSITE

A new area on the HR website has been tailored specifically to support those in managerial/supervisory roles. Conveniently access resources, new community channels, guidance during COVID and training. A link for Managers can be found at the top of every page in the "Pages For" menu!
