Advancement of WMS HR Procedures


2016 - 2020
New process for leavers

In May 2016 we introduced a new leavers' process, which enables notifications and prompts to be sent automatically once an online leaver's checklist has been created for staff leaving the University or transferring to another department. This aims to simplify and streamline the process for managing leavers through an online form, a WMS Leavers Checklist Record. The aim of this is to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible for both the employee who is leaving and their line manager or administrative lead.

2013 - 2016
Work experience guidance and documentation pack

This pack was developed to provide comprehensive support to pupils in obtaining a suitable placement at the Medical School and to ensure compliance with Health and Safety, Wellbeing and the different procedures that have to be followed for research and clinical work experience.

Enhanced maternity /adoption/ paternity process

We introduced a new process to provide comprehensive support to employees, prior to commencing their maternity / adoption leave / extended paternity leave; and when they return to work. As part of this the Dean or representative (Heads of Division, Divisional Managers or Senior Managers) meet and conduct a review with employees one month prior to commencing their maternity/adoption leave or extended paternity leave and three months after they return to work.

Leavers process review

A review of the Leavers process, leavers checklist’ and exit interview form was undertaken and resulted in the development of new checklists and an online exit questionnaire.
