As leaders across the University prepare to share the Faculty and Staff Gallup Engagement Survey results with their teams, a group of volunteers is training to become Engagement Champions and lend a hand. With a love for the U and its future success, Engagement Champions will coach leaders and serve as experts on engagement.
Nadia Castaing, director of accounts receivable management, is one of 25 of the University of Miami’s newest Engagement Champions.
“I wholeheartedly believe that when people and teams are engaged at work, they can achieve optimal results,” said Castaing. “I look forward to listening and learning from other leaders’ challenges and their plans to improve engagement in their areas.”
More spots are available to volunteer. To become an Engagement Champion, employees must meet the following requirements:
- Minimum of 1.5 years as full-time/permanent employee
- Performance review of at least “meets standards” and no performance warnings for the past year
- In a leadership position with direct reports, for at least a year
