Passport to Success: Where Is Your Career Taking You?

Rutgers University-Newark Staff,

The Newark Human Resources office is excited to announce a redesign to our yearly staff recognition event. This year, we have partnered with the Staff Council Formation Committee, and colleagues from across the campus  develop a more robust way of showing you how much we appreciate everything that you do for Rutgers University-Newark! 

This year’s theme for Staff Appreciation is: Passport to Success: Where is Your Career Taking You?

To launch this year’s events, on March 2nd, we will kick-off our Staff Appreciation and Program with a  sponsored lunch for 300 employees at Stonsby Commons. 

For more information regarding this event, please click HERE.

During the months of March through June, you will have the opportunity to participate in a series of learning and development sessions. Some of the themes for the sessions will be centered on Leadership Development, Communication, Cultural Competency, Civic Engagement, and much more. These sessions will be hosted by both internal and external subject matter experts.
