Managing Workloads

Massey is committed to developing mechanisms to ensure that staff workloads are fair, equitable, reasonable and safe, and that the mechanisms used for allocating workloads are comprehensive and transparent.

The Workloads Policy, which is available below, describes the principles for allocating workloads at Massey, while the accompanying procedures outline the procedures for allocating workloads and for resolving differences should any arise between a staff member and their manager.

In addition to the Workloads Policy and Procedures, in 2003 the former Massey University Workloads Monitoring Group (WMG) began the task of monitoring the operation of workload allocation models in order to identify where improvements might be made or further support provided. The task included reviewing a selection of workload models in use to explore whether the models had been effectively implemented.

An outcome of the WMG was the development of guidelines for the management of academic and professional staff workloads, which were distributed by Human Resources in July 2005.The WMG also developed workload guidelines for Summer School, which were approved by the then Vice-Chancellor’s Executive Committee.

These documents remain useful resources today for our managers in assisting them in managing the workloads of their staff and as such, are available below:
