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.

When are applications due?

Applications are due on Friday, Oct. 27 to Lance.Page@ucop.edu and can be found at the UCOP Learning and Development website.
