Unit relocation for some key areas

Space needs drive changes

September 7, 2022 — 

As the University of Manitoba returns to more in-person activity for Fall 2022, space needs that were challenging prior to the pandemic have become further compounded by renovations and decommissioning of spaces including the B Lot trailers.

As a result, the following administrative and research support units have been impacted:
• Human Resources in the Administration and Education Buildings
• Financial Services in the Administration Building
• IST in B Lot Trailers and Engineering Building
• Legal Office in Engineering Building
• Research Services Office in Machray Hall

As of September 12, 2022, temporary space in Smartpark as well as in the Crop Technology Building has been secured for staff in these units to attend to in-person activities, otherwise they will continue to work remotely.

These space challenges have presented an opportunity for the University to assess how these types of work arrangements may meet the diverse needs of our campus community in new and different ways. Human Resources, IST, Financial Services and the Legal Office remote work site will be at 100 Innovation Drive. Research Services remote site will be in the Crop Technology Building, 194 Dafoe Road.

We expect this will last for the next 10-12 months and during this time, we will be monitoring and assessing the impacts of continued remote work arrangements on service delivery, staff satisfaction and engagement, and space utilization.

We are committed to meeting the needs of the University and providing continued seamless support to the community.

The Cashier’s Office will maintain in-person service in University Center 1st floor, the IST Service Desk will maintain in-person service in 123 Fletcher Argue and Human Resources will maintain an office in 109 Administration Building to support in-person inquiries.
