Information for Faculty

News & Announcements

  • Stanford employees are motivated to excel in the workplace, whether teaching or mentoring students, conducting or supporting research, caring for patients, or ensuring the efficiency and effectiveness of the university’s administrative processes and infrastructure. But when it comes to strategizing about career development, this subject can be daunting to tackle and by nature fits into the important but not urgent quadrant of time management.

  • This fall, new staff hires will be welcomed to Stanford through a redesigned orientation program that will centralize services resulting in significant time savings for new hires, managers and other departmental employees involved in the onboarding process.

April 17 WorkLife Brown Bag: Are You Good to Go?

Preparing for funeral arrangements are never easy. If you died today, would you be ready? The vast majority of us are not willing to address death until it is almost too late, and then we have limited our options.

The Funeral Consumers Alliance of San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties is committed to providing consumers this necessary planning information. In this session, attendees will learn about paperwork required for pre-need planning, receive information on funeral options and other important end-of-life decisions.

Location: Bechtel International Center Conference Room, 584 Capistrano Way (campus map)

No RSVPs needed to attend this free session.

This event is co-sponsored by Faculty Staff Help Center. This Brown Bag earns an Emergency Preparedness BeWell Berry.
