ALL STAFF AT UCSD (Including UCSD Healthcare)

SUBJECT:  People Expo - Supporting Work and Life at UCSD

During the course of its research, the Staff Retention and Support Steering Committee (SRSSC) heard staff express the need for more information about, and access to, the many opportunities and resources that support work/life here at UCSD. Next week's People Expo promises to deliver on this need for comprehensive information, offering a creative forum for connecting the UCSD community with a world of career, professional development, and work/life opportunities.

The People Expo will feature presentations, exhibits, interactive demonstrations, and videos to provide UCSD staff with people-centered tools and resources, educational benefits and Web-based training opportunities, ergonomic workstations, personal enrichment courses, position transfer procedures, and much more.

For more information and to register for a free continental breakfast, go to the People Expo Web site at:


I strongly encourage supervisors to release staff to attend this important event as work permits. This is a wonderful development opportunity for attendees to obtain information on a variety of topics.

I would also like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to the Staff Retention and Support Steering Committee and the Human Resources Department for their dedication and contributions to this staff-centered event.
