The university supports and encourages all staff to enhance their professional development and to seek promotions among departments. Inevitably, however, staff changes cause disruptions, and the university discourages "job-hopping” by requiring staff to work a one-year minimum in a position before relocating except under extenuating circumstances.
As a supervisor, you are responsible to recognize qualified staff for promotion and/or transfer, but you will be given the opportunity to determine whether a transfer will cause hardship. Also, you may be called upon to give a formal or informal opinion on the qualifications of a particular member of your
staff to assume a new position. The Human Resources department is available to help you in this task.
