UoN staff receive important organisational messages in a number of ways, with internal communication shared across a number of different areas.

Staff engagement

At UON, we want our workforce to be connected, engaged and informed. We also want our people to have a voice as we strive to achieve our vision for 2025.

Through all our staff engagement activity at UON we will reflect the behaviours described in the Leadership Framework - particularly the notions collaboration, excellence, performance, courage and respect.


In your area

Division and Faculty communications officers support staff engagement in their particular areas. They can provide advice on the most effective ways to get your message out.

Managers are responsible for ensuring that important whole-of-university messages are cascaded effectively to their staff.  Equally, it is your manager's role to communicate back 'up the chain' any thoughts or concerns that you raise. Managers are provided with the fortnightly Leadership Brief for this purpose.


Engaging across the organisation

There are a number of ways to communicate important information across the University.

You can submit your story by email to staffengagement@newcastle.edu.au or phone the relevant person to discuss your messages.
