new grievance policy


Employee feedback prompts updates to grievance policy

Purdue University is dedicated to ensuring positive working relationships for all faculty and staff. When an employee’s work experience is altered to the point where he or she feels the need to file a grievance, you know the environment is uncomfortable and that attempts to solve the issue through informal means have failed.

At that point, Purdue University’s grievance policy, which exists to provide a fair and equitable formal process for an employee to have his or her dispute(s) heard, comes into play. However, negative feedback received from supervisors and employees involved in the current grievance process prompted a review.


She shines bright, helps resolve conflict

We all know there are thousands of behind-the-scenes movers and shakers at Purdue University. In our busy, day-to-day roles on campus it’s rare we think of the others in the trenches making things happen – that is, until we need help.

When it comes to helping employees, the Employee Relations department’s priority is assisting supervisors and employees with work-related situations they may encounter. Acting as the employee’s or supervisor’s connection, Employee Relations team members help maintain and manage employer-employee relationships.


Recruitment, retention initiative passes one-year mark

The Office of Faculty Recruitment and Retention (OFRR) has now been up and running for a full year, and its results are impressive.
