It's Time for a Reset with Summer Series!

It’s time for a reset


The semester is over. Evaluations are over. Summer is here. It’s time for a reset.


Did you know when employees have a “performance reset”, they’re more likely to find motivation, reengage, and grow?


Come join Staff Senate and Talent Development for a summertime reset with The Series education modules. We’ll help you reset with opportunities to connect with fellow red raiders, eat delicious snacks (chicken minis at times), and help you with your personal and professional development.


Do any of these questions resonate with you?

  • Have you ever shown up to work, hit “The Wall”, and found that the motivation to get through a day is harder than ever?
  • After your evaluation, your boss gives you “Opportunities for growth” but all you can see is how bad of an employee you are? How do you work through feedback in a productive way?
  • Maybe you wake up and look around at your work and life and wonder, “What happened?” How can you find balance again?

We are here for you. This Summer let us help you reset with three events to help you find a way through the sunny days of summer. Come on, you know you want to.
