Staff development begins even before an employee joins the university, with human resource planning and staff recruitment and selection. These services, programmes and opportunities are aimed at entities and superiors wishing to appoint staff. Once they have hired a candidate, the Staff Development team’s services, programmes and opportunities aim to help employees find their feet as they join Paderborn University. We want to make new staff members feel welcome and to assist them during their induction period.
For experienced Paderborn University employees, there are opportunities to further develop their skills. Employees also want services, programmes and opportunities that foster co-operative collaboration and mutual exchange. In conjunction with the “Healthy University” programme, these measures are also intended to help promote good health among Paderborn University employees. Our objective is to ensure that staff identify with Paderborn University and feel a strong sense of commitment to their employer.
Every employment relationship ends at the latest when the employee reaches retirement or pension age. To ensure that when long-term employees of Paderborn University leave, the university does not also lose vital expertise, we aim to support divisions and departments in managing important knowledge efficiently. For individual employees, we aim to provide services, programmes and opportunities to ease their transition into their new role outside Paderborn University.
The overarching themes in all that we offer and do are equality, diversity and internationalisation. We attach particular importance to promoting these three aspects in all the services, programmes and opportunities we offer. To ensure the quality of the services, programmes and opportunities we offer, we evaluate our measures on an on-going basis.
