UC Experience Conversations ToolKit

Check out the new UC Experience Conversations toolkit, developed by a UC systemwide workgroup to support career development and increase retention of our valued employees. Managers and employees who participated in a systemwide pilot found the toolkit valuable and strongly supported sharing its use at all UC locations. 

The tools will enhance one-on-one, broad-ranging conversations between managers and staff employees and cover topics such as: 

• Overall job experience 

• Retention 

• Wellbeing and work-life balance 

• Career development 

• Inclusion and belonging 

• Manager support 

These two-way conversations, also known as "stay interviews," are an excellent way for managers to build constructive relationships and discuss areas important to employees. While these are not formal performance review conversations, they may result in action items, follow-up, and leader support related to job satisfaction, career development, or motivation at work. 

The toolkit can be found on the UC Experience Conversations website.
