Our institutions, our systems, ourselves. Working well? In so many ways the answer must be ‘Yes’. As individuals we hold down challenging roles that need careful thought, hard work and detailed knowledge. Our vital HR systems manage everything from pay and tax, to recruitment and onboarding, and the furthering of equity and inclusion within highly complex organisations. As universities, whether we were founded in this century or in medieval times we work well to provide the best possible education for the coming generation, and research that takes human understanding forward every single year. Our sector is a source of considerable soft power for the UK, and we influence widely and at the topmost level. Our universities contribute to national success – in arts and sciences, in politics and economics, indeed in every human sphere.
What does ‘working well’ mean in this era? To be aware of our own wellbeing, to manage ourselves and our energies in ways that are sustainable? To support our colleagues in maintaining a good work/life balance? To work well with partners, and to collaborate across the whole institutional ecosystem and beyond? To foster inclusive environments where the talents of the whole team can thrive and where we can all find our space to contribute fully? To be flexible about how and where we work, and to adapt as technology brings opportunities that didn’t exist before?
At #UHR23, ‘Working Well’, we’ll be looking at all of this and more. Join us online from 9 to 11 May 2023. As always we’ll be joined by great speakers, we’ll meet and share knowledge with colleagues from across the country, and via the UHR Awards, we’ll celebrate successes and learn together.
The 2023 Conference will take place online via Hopin. More details can be found on the dedicated Conference website.
Please note that you will need to be logged in to your UHR website account to book a ticket. If you do not yet have an account, please register here.
Just like last year we are using Team Tickets for institutions, which means you can book the whole of your HR Team to attend as part of the same ticket. Choose one person from the dropdown list (preferably the HR Director) and then choose the correct ticket type according to your UHR membership subscription band; there are five Team Ticket prices, depending on your band (or an individual ticket can be chosen if you don’t want a whole Team Ticket):
Nearer the time we will send an email with a SurveyMonkey link to register for the Conference. This email will be sent to the HRD and/or the person your institution has nominated at the time of booking, to handle Conference administration. This link should then be distributed amongst your team members to register for the Conference. Those who have registered will then be sent a Hopin login to access the Conference - this will be sent the week before Conference. All delegates from your organisation will need to have an account on the UHR website in order to access resources post Conference.
Due to the cost of processing invoices, we strongly prefer delegates to pay by Credit Card. However, please be aware that, depending on your booking preferences, the conference will cost between £360 incl. VAT (for 1 delegate) and £1440 incl. VAT (at Band 5). If your Credit Card limit prevents you from paying by card, please use the 'pay by invoice' option. Please note that you will need to provide a PO number, we will not be able to process and confirm your booking without one. Our supplier name is Professional HE Services LTD and we are registered with every University as a supplier.
If you do intend to pay by card, please have it ready when you start the booking process as choices cannot be saved and bookings are not complete until payment has been processed.
