Melody Bianchetto, Vice President of Finance, hosted a leadership retreat and invited Ufirst project team members and UVA HR professionals to share ideas and experiences on “Leading Through Change.”
Gary Helmuth, HR Business Partner for Finance, developed content that would meet the team’s need for more information on Change, Performance Management, and Goal Setting.
James Gorman, newly appointed Senior Director of Finance, presented his experiences with large transformation efforts.
Carrie Baker, future UVA HR Performance Management team member, talked about Goal Setting.
Rose Markey, future UVA Learning and Development team member, facilitated a discussion about surviving change.
What we heard from presenters:
“This was a great opportunity to showcase how HR Business Partners will collaborate with network of HR professionals to support schools/units across UVA.”
What we heard from attendees:
“This was more than I had hoped for -- I thought it would be a little theoretical and hard to connect to, but it was way more practical and realistic and helpful than I had imagined it might be. Good job.”
Please remember that the Ufirst project team and UVA HR are here to support you during this time of unprecedented change.
