Workplace envy

October 5, 2017

I am an administrator in an academic department and suffer far greater resource envy than pay envy, appalled though I am by the different percentage increase between classes of staff. Our workloads have become unmanageable in the context of increased student numbers and we simply cannot deliver the quality of support necessary to provide high-quality higher education.

Whatever the “brilliance” of leadership in senior management may be, our vice-chancellors would be pointless without able and highly committed staff at the service delivery end.
