Staff Development

New staff

The University runs a regular half day event for all new staff entitled, 'Welcome to Loughborough'.

During the event, you will meet key senior staff, hear why Loughborough is the success it is today and what the plans are for the future. It also covers some essential information relating to health and safety matters and provides you an opportunity to meet other new staff.

You will be automatically registered to attend the next available date following the start of your contact. If you are unable to attend on the date given to you, you will need to contact us.

Respecting Diversity: is mandatory for all staff and forms part of your probation.

There is a one hour online interactive E&D course: ‘Diversity in the Workplace’: recommended for staff with zero hours contracts, those that work less than 13 hours a week and have worked at the University for at least 8 weeks.

This half day interactive course arises out of the University’s commitment to equality and diversity as outlined in its 2016 strategy and out of a desire to respond to recent changes in legislation. To book a place log into my.HR.
