How the Take Charge program can benefit employees and their managers
UCOP’s Take Charge: Developing a Career Strategy program is now accepting applications for 2017-18. The five-month program will provide 20 UCOP administrative and support staff members with valuable tools to better direct and manage their careers.
What does a former participant have to say about the program?
Arthur Barker, coordinator of the vice president’s immediate office (VPIO) in Systemwide Human Resources, had this to say about attending the program: “The Take Charge program provided meaningful, easy-to-use tools that were essential in moving my career to the next level!”
What are the benefits to a manager when one of their employees attends?
- Communication between you and your employee will improve.
- Your employee will be better able to negotiate assertively and effectively on behalf of your team.
- Attending the program is a significant non-monetary reward you can give to your employee.
- Your unit will gain visibility through the employee’s application of enhanced networking skills.
