This section provides resources and tools for managers to assist people in developing and managing their staff.
To help you be successful in this role, and assist you in developing and managing your staff, the below tools and resources are available to you.
Some thoughts about your role from the Vice-Chancellor Steve Maharey:
A self-directed induction programme has been designed for new managers. This is a key focus for Massey as a good induction will help those new to the job or managerial role settle in and get up to speed quickly.
Each new manager (joining Massey or promoted to role) will be invited to complete the programme and you as their manager will be key in the success of that journey.
There are also online resources that have been developed in conjunction with the manager induction programme which you can access below.
This area may also be of interest to existing managers who wish to understand more about the current strategic context at the University.
For Health and Safety information that Massey managers need to know:

A range of flexible working arrangements are available at Massey to enable staff to meet home or family responsibilities, achieve enhanced productivity whilst reducing pressures as a result of competing interests or allow recognition of diversity requirements.
From 2013 to 2015 Massey has run a series of staff surveys to support staff being able to voice their opinions about how Massey University is doing, and to find ways to help us improve our performance. These surveys are an important component of the Road to 2025 strategy of making Massey University a great place to work by enhancing people’s ‘voice’ by having a range of feedback mechanisms and facilitating team-based conversations about things that matter to Massey staff and the University.
Detail on both the staff survey results and actions that have been taken as a result of staff feedback are available at:
