How engaged are you?

Issued: Mon, 30 Jul 2018 16:04:00 BST

The Engagement Leads Network works across the University to collaborate and share good practice.

By working together on a regular basis, the group aims to improve communication and support the implementation of positive change initiatives.

The University's Engagement Leads come from a variety of roles and backgrounds and have recently been fortunate to add a number of new members. Crucially, additional resources have now been committed to further support the Engagement Leads and ensure that engagement activity continues to grow in an organic and sustainable way. The team are now meeting regularly and are working hard to support positive change across the University.

Here’s what some of our Leads think of the role so far:

"I am enthusiastic about the role of the Engagement Lead. It's a well-known fact that feeling a part of our work environment and recognising the important role each of us plays, makes our work more enjoyable and more productive. This is surely a fine aspiration for us all here at the University of Glasgow."

(Kirsteen McCue, Professor of Scottish Literature & Song Culture, School of Critical Studies)

My time as an Engagement Lead has been very rewarding, working with colleagues from different areas of the University to share ideas and positive news stories whilst supporting positive change within my own area. Employee engagement impacts upon us all and with the growing momentum in this area, I am looking forward to future developments in this area.

(Chris Bevan, Head of Administration, Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health & Comparative Medicine)
