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.
