Stay competitive in salary
Answered - Clinical Laboratory Supervisor/Operations Manager (Former Employee) - Los Angeles, CA
Pay a wage commiserate with the public sector in LA and go beyond the standard 2% "merit increase" every July. The university loses many fine employees from their lack of equitable compensation for rank and file staff.
Give a living wage increase, value Staff, hire managers who actually are good at managing staff, provide real training for new staff. Encourage and value a diverse staff.

Hire more competent managers! Prevent the "bully" mentality of management! TRAIN NEW HIRES! You wouldn't throw someone in the water if they couldn't swim would you? Pay a living wage! You can build all of those buildings, but you can't increase salaries? And management should definitely be more diverse...There is a HUGE disparity in people of color in management campus wide, as well faculty. Do more to demand better treatment of employees.
Be open to things happening that are out of the employees control.
