Covid-19: OD Support

New for this week:
The next virtual community café for furloughed staff is taking place on Tuesday 1st September between 10am-10.45am. Using feedback from the previous café, this one will be focused on the subject of ‘volunteering’. It will be an informal session with a chance to hear about volunteering opportunities, to ask questions or a chance to listen and catch up with colleagues. If you are a furloughed member of staff and would like to attend this online cafe please complete the online booking form. I would also like to share with you a dedicated resource webpage that has been created to share more information on volunteering and also health and wellbeing.

Read our blog about the realities of working remotely and please let us know about your experiences too.

The new 'Staff Welcome to Warwick' page has been designed as a temporary online alternative to the face-to-face welcome meeting. This page covers some of the wider University induction and has been designed to help new staff learn more about the benefits of campus life and what the University has to offer.

During a period of uncertainty and unprecedented change, such as the current situation caused by the Coronavirus outbreak, it may be that you are required to work from home. Whether using a desktop PC, laptop or working with paper-based activities there are simple measures outlined in a checklist that Health and Safety recommend you can take to reduce risk and minimise any potential for problems.
