Youth Program Policy Information

Throughout the year, but particularly during the summer months, the University of Miami hosts programs that welcome youths under the age of 18 to our campus. As the University prepares for these summer activities, the Office of Human Resources reminds the entire community of our collective commitment to the protection, safety, and welfare of children.

All members of the UM community should review the Youth Protection Policy. This policy provides guidelines for University-related activities hosted for youths, both on and off campus, and provides important reminders about our obligation to report any sexual misconduct or mistreatment of minors.

For more information, please contact Bonnie M. Muschett, director of compliance and Title IX coordinator, at titleixcoordinator@miami.edu.

Did you know that you can have a TALK session year round? Managers can initiate a TALK session at any time with their direct reports.  Between October and January, managers should meet with their direct reports one-on-one to discuss progress on assigned goals/projects. This is a good time to discuss any newly assigned goals/projects that will be reviewed during the next TALK session. Employees have an opportunity during the TALK session to discuss their work and the steps they plan to take to complete the goals/projects. Tip sheets are available at Workday HR: Performance Review.

UM Named One of America’s Best Employers by Forbes

Independent survey reflects employee pride

Forbes-Best-EmployerCORAL GABLES, Fla. (May 10, 2017) —The University of Miami is ranked No. 15 on the 2017 Forbes list of America’s Best Employers—the highest-ranked University in the nation and the highest-ranked organization in Florida. This is the first time UM has been included on the list, which is based on independent surveys of employees.

“We are proud and honored to receive this recognition,” said Nerissa Morris, vice president for human resources. “We work hard to foster a culture where employees are able to grow, feel valued, and contribute to our missions. Knowing our employees recommend the University as a place to work is a powerful statement. Today, we feel the strength of the UM spirit and sense of community across the University.”

Released Tuesday, May 9, the Forbes rankings recognize the nation’s top 500 large employers and the 300 best mid-sized employers.

To compile the rankings, Forbes partnered with Statista, an online statistics provider, to conduct an independent survey of more than 30,000 employees across 23 industries. Participation in the survey was voluntary, and respondents were recruited from thousands of sources to maximize reach and representation.

Participants, who were contacted anonymously online—not through their employer—were asked their willingness to recommend their employer on a scale from 0 to 10. The scores were then analyzed, involving highly selective criteria, which determined the University of Miami to be one of America’s best.
