People Development and Organisation Effectiveness

This area of UCD HR is responsible for the design and delivery of a range of university-wide development initiatives which are aligned with the University strategy. A central focus of the current strategy is the building of a performance and development culture and this team is leading on several projects associated with that, including the following:

    • UCD Leadership & People Manager Programme - a comprehensive suite of development support offerings for those with people management and development responsibilities and those in leadership roles of all types.
    • Introduction of Functional and Behavioural Competencies situated within a Job Family Framework enabling meaningful career and development planning and facilitating the introduction of a Performance and Development system suitable to a university environment.
    • The development of an organisation design framework and toolkit to enable a more structured approach to organisation design thinking and decision-making

Toolkits and frameworks which enhance skills and practices in areas such as high performing teams and implementing change effectively will also be developed over time. Ongoing work within this area also includes working closely with HR Partners in diagnosing issues and designing bespoke development responses for Schools and Units, supporting the Researcher Career and Development Framework, the annual programme of general Training, Development and Wellbeing events, the Faculty Development and Promotions Framework, and Job Grading.
