Accountability report on staff employees
Dwaine B. Duckett, vice president of human resources, presented the first-ever staff accountability sub-report to the UC Board of Regents on Jan. 19.
The report found that staff at the University of California are critical to its success, but unless UC proactively addresses issues of an aging work force, compensation and leadership development, the quality and service of employees could suffer in the coming years and UC may find itself unprepared to face the challenges ahead.
According to the report, UC has more than 125,000 staff, performing a variety of important functions at all levels of the university. UC’s Human Resources leaders are concerned about maintaining competitive salaries and providing opportunities for advancement for high performing staff. Not doing so will make it difficult for UC to retain its talented staff once the economy improves and as greater numbers of baby boomers retire.
