Stonewall Top 100 Employers
The University has been named as a top 100 employer for lesbian, gay, bi and trans staff for the fourth consecutive year.
Our continued commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion means we’re ranked in Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index 2017, the definitive list showcasing the best employers for LGBT equality.
As well as submitting evidence on areas of employment policy and practice, we shared the Stonewall survey with all colleagues back in October 2016. We look forward to working with Stonewall to continue our efforts to create an inclusive workplace for LGBT staff.
Juice Body Health Check & Book Group
Places are available on Juice Body Health Checks running throughout January. These are one to one sessions, run by a qualified fitness instructor, which will give you a set of results to use as a guide for your health and wellbeing journey.
Appointment slots are 15 minutes and cover BMI, Blood Pressure & Body Fat.
For something a bit different, join a Book Group lunchtime session to discuss the book of the month. The group covers a wide range of genres including everything from sci-fi, to autobiographies and beyond.
The next meeting will be held on Monday 23 January, with the book of the month Notes from an Exhibition by Patrick Gale.
Visit Juice via MUSE to book onto these sessions and find out what else is on.
Our position on Casual Working
Andrew Dodman, Chief Operating Officer at the University of Sheffield, said:
“We know from what our staff tell us, we're already seen as an excellent place to work and provide a very attractive total reward and benefits package for all our staff, including those on fixed term contracts. We also ensure those who work with us on a more flexible/casual basis are afforded the same rates of pay as those employed directly by the University.
"As part of our ongoing support to staff, we’re working proactively with the University & College Union (UCU) and our other local trade unions to identify means of reviewing the employment status of all those who work on a casual basis to ensure our relationship suits the individual and supports the needs of the University and our students.
“We pride ourselves in being an excellent employer and will continue to review and apply fairness to all our staff - be they on open ended, fixed term contracts or engaged on a casual basis - in order to build on our reputation as one of the best employers in the sector."
