Follow-up to Sustainable Employability Monitor

After receiving the results of the UM Sustainable Employability Monitor earlier this year, the UM has opted for a two-step approach:

  • setting up a UM-wide Taskforce Workload Sustainable Employability developing a strategy for a holistic approach to work-related issues;
  • creation of reflection groups with staff

The UM-wide Taskforce Workload Sustainable Employability will discuss the follow-up to the monitor and develop a strategy for a holistic approach towards key aspects such as work pressure, inclusivity, development opportunities, future employability and life-phase friendly personnel policies. FASoS is represented in the taskforce by the faculty dean.

Starting points for the reflection groups with staff who will meet twice, are the bottlenecks as revealed by the Sustainable Employability Monitor. Led by an external consultant, the groups will discuss the findings of the UM-SEM and will subsequently search for possible solutions while taking into account the technical, organizational, legislative and financial feasibility. During the second meeting in early 2020, the implementation of the proposed solutions is up for discussion. The results of the meetings will be shared with the staff.

For FASoS there will be two separate reflections groups of academic staff respectively meeting on 21 and 22 October. The colleagues participating in the reflection groups include staff from all levels (PhDs, teaching assistants, postdocs, UDs, UHDs, professors).

Colleagues participating in the two reflection groups for academic staff include:
Group 1: Harro van Lente, Joke Spruyt, Elissaveta Radulova, Miriam Meisner, Maud Oostindie, Karlijn Strijbosch, Andrea Wojcik, Floris Peters, John Parkinson;
Group 2: Cyrus Mody, Giselle Bosse, Darian Meacham, Elsje Fourie, Josje Weusten, Vincent Bijman, Yan Manling, Christophe Leclerc, Karlijn Haagsman

Support staff will be part of a UM reflection group meeting in the first half of November. The colleagues participating on behalf of FASoS are: Joost Dijkstra, Fransje Muijsken and Simon Vogel.
