Distribute workloads more evenly. Reward the good employees so that the U of I retains good talent. Help good employees develop and achieve growth. It's amazing to me how many politics are involved in the university and how much bullying is tolerated. There are some super unprofessional people working for the University that I have no clue how they still hold positions. I should never hear how so and so doesn't get along with someone. This isn't the playground... it is work- you're PAID to collaborate and find common ground with your co-workers. Anything less should be unacceptable to the University. It drives talented people away like myself who do not want to be subjected to bullies in the workplace who run all over people because they are allowed.
