Wisdom Cafe Wednesday:
Return to the Workplace

The planning process is underway to begin returning larger numbers of employees to on-site work to prepare for the return of students and “close-to-normal” operations for the August 18th start of the fall semester.

Beginning on June 16, 2021, consistent with current guidance from the state of California, we anticipate permitting employees who previously were working remotely to return to on-site work on a voluntary basis, subject to their supervisor and business unit’s approval.We have curated a few resources to support you in the return to work process.

UC Berkeley Future of Work Committee

The COVID-19 pandemic provided us the opportunity to learn new ways to excel in our work. Starting in March 2020, our campus workforce adapted, innovated, persevered, and learned. UC Berkeley’s Future of Work Committee was developed by Berkeley's Division of Academic Planning to better understand what you, our workforce, wants and needs when we return to the workplace. This committee seeks to deliver guidance that campus leaders, managers, and supervisors may choose to implement once we are able to safely return to campus.
