MAY 2020 – As OHD is charting this new virtual working environment alongside University employees, we are exploring different platforms (Microsoft Teams, WebEx, etc.) and tools to deliver content and continue providing learning and development opportunities for the University community. Our spring offerings will be in trial formats as we develop a delivery framework that works best for both our learners and our facilitation team.

It's only been two weeks since our last newsletter supplemental, but it feels like so much has changed. We at Organizational and Human Development (OHD) understand that these changes to your working environment and the current health situation with COVID-19 can be stressful and impact employees in a variety of ways.

In light of the current COVID-19 global health crisis making events and gatherings complicated, the University of Waterloo has suspended events at the institution for the foreseeable future to focus on the health and safety of the community and its academic mission. This suspension includes Organizational and Human Development (OHD) workshops and learning events as there is a strong case to support social distancing over the next few weeks as the situation with COVID-19 evolves.
