Human Resources Development & Family Service

Human resources development in the university context is the key to building a bridge between the university of the future and the personnel of today. A steady expansion of knowledge and skills in the competence areas of work technology, digitality, communication, interaction and the social dimension, as well as leadership and management, is required to meet the changing demands of the university landscape.

Staff development and family service offerings support university staff in,

  • better explore their own strengths and weaknesses and thus make more conscious decisions that allow them to realize their full potential
  • develop self-regulation skills, empathy, and interpersonal skills as a basis for good interpersonal relationships, effective communication, and a positive work environment.
  • continuously enhance leadership and management skills. Through conscious decision making, creative conflict resolution, effective communication, leadership roles can be better fulfilled in a variety of university contexts.
  • develop resilience and stress management strategies. This is especially important in a fast-paced and demanding work environment to withstand stress, promote personal well-being, and thus be a role model for staff, colleagues, and students.
  • to develop strategies for the compatibility of professional and private life, especially in the course of one's career, and to anchor these consciously and sustainably.
