With the aim of building a sense of community and connection between staff on the Launceston campuses, CCB facilitates a range of social, cultural and fundraising activities.
CCB facilitates and supports activities where staff members, of all levels and divisions, can interact in a social setting. The key aim is to improve workplace satisfaction by helping staff feel welcome, valued and part of a supportive network.
Improved connections between staff also encourages improved information sharing and the potential for interdisciplinary communication and projects.
For more information view this schedule for planned Campus Community Builders events, times and venues.
If you have any ideas on events or activities that could be enjoyed by UTAS staff, which could be arranged through CCB, or UTAS facilities that you'd like to visit, we'd love to hear from you! Please contact Natalie Edwards via email email@example.com or phone Ext 3095 with your ideas.
