As our campus continues to work remotely, (see information in the emails that have been circulated from President Schlissel and Chancellor Dutta), we will update this page with helpful tools, tips and resources for faculty, staff and student/non-student temporary employees.
REMOTE WORKING RESOURCES
REMOTE WORKING TOOLS
We have included below guidelines for working remotely along with templates for tracking productivity and work tasks. These are not mandatory, but may be helpful for supervisors and staff to coordinate work efforts.
FURLOUGH OR REDUCTION IN HOURS INFORMATION
Here you will find information on voluntary temporary furloughs and temporarily reduced hours. The second link is a chart that outlines the impact of furloughs, reduction in hours and time off programs in employee benefits.
Please email the HR Staff at email@example.com for questions related to payroll or timekeeping.
While we do now know how long the need for working remotely may continue, we do know that the next few weeks will pose some unique challenges. However, we can all help out by being understanding and supportive of one another. Please see the document at the link below for a few key suggestions to help you working remotely.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES
FACULTY AND STAFF COUNSELING AND CONSULTATION OFFICE (FASCCO)
Some FASCCO counselors are available through telehealth (video conferencing) sessions or phone sessions, including FASCCO counselors in the Genesee County area. To access the service, please follow the same process as before - contact FASSCO services (734) 936-8660 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. One of the admin support staff will get back to you with the normal authorization information.
In addition to the counseling services available, other supportive resources, including those for mental health, for faculty and staff can be found at:
The Center for Positive Organizations
Guide to Well-Being During the Covid-19 Pandemic from UM Human Resources
VIRTUAL RECREATION & WELLNESS
There are lots of ways to stay active and focus on your personal wellness from home. The Rec Center has created resources for you to utilize, and will be updated their website with new resources as they become available.
HEALTHY TIPS AND WEBINARS
MHealthy Coordinators from around the University have created a webpage with resources, tips and videos focused on how to support your well-being while dealing with COVID-19 pandemic. It is important we do not forget what we need to do to stay healthy while we are working remotely or working on campus:
Uncertainly about stock markets, savings, retirement futures of faculty and staff is an obvious concern during this pandemic. Our counselors at TIAA and Fidelity Investments can provide assistance and consultation via email and over the phone. Please see their contact information listed below:
