I really enjoyed a conversation with our staff about the Strategic Plan. Questions were thoughtful and wide ranging. Views were expressed. Aspirations for the new plan were articulated.
We did the exercise of sharing the campus master plan. Thanks to the presentation from Vice President Jacqui Ballou, there was a widespread feeling that drainage and utilities needed to be a priority. Granted, it is not the most exciting feature on the campus, but as one staff member explained, “It is the type of thing that you just have to get right.”
Let me reiterate the invitation I issued yesterday. We would love every staff member to share their ideas. Just email them to Taryn Habberley. Any employee who has an idea that gets included in the strategic plan will be rewarded with a voucher for the restaurant of their choice. So please send your ideas to Taryn; this is the opportunity to shape VTS for the next five years.
