Human Resource Development

Fostering Honor in the Workplace

Description

Brigham Young University employs over 14,000 students to approximately 2,500 work supervisors. Often, student employees will spend more time with their supervisors than they will with any one faculty member. According to the “Aims of a BYU Education,” we know that “every part of the BYU experience should strengthen character.” In addition to teaching students how to DO their jobs, what a tremendous responsibility we, as supervisors, have to influence the building of character.

This year’s campus-wide Honor Week is scheduled for February 19-22. In conjunction with Honor Week, representatives from Student Employment, Employee Relations, Human Resource Development and the Honor Code Office will conduct a seminar, entitled Fostering Honor in the Workplace, on Thursday, February 21st from 10:30 AM-12:00 PM.

Outcome

The seminar  will focus on several honor-related issues in the workplace and how supervisors can appropriately and effectively address these issues with their employees. Some of the topics that will be discussed include:

- Dress & Grooming Standards

- Honesty in the workplace

- Appropriate behavior towards others

- Appropriate use of university property

We invite you to bring your questions as there will be opportunities for discussion. This session will take place in 3380 WSC (Little Theatre).
