If you are a Michigan Medicine staff member looking for a way to continue sharing your input throughout the year, consider joining Voices of the Staff.

What is Voices? 

Voices of the Staff is the long-standing U-M employee engagement program for staff from Michigan Medicine and every academic campus.

Each year it brings together 120 staff members to help drive workplace improvement for all. 

Voices of the Staff has six network teams, each with a specific area of focus.

  • Advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • Enhancing the Employee Experience
  • Embracing Change and Leading at all Levels
  • Fostering Learning, Coaching, and Mentoring
  • Leveraging Technology
  • Striving for Well-being

In 2021, the latest challenge facing the staff community is how to reimagine what the workplace will be like in the near-term and beyond. The Voices team will be a great resource as the organization continues to develop the “future of work” at the university.  

Together, as a member of Voices of the Staff, you can help staff have the best work experience possible.

To participate, interested staff must have at least one year of experience, be in good standing with supervisor support and apply for Voices of the Staff by April 30.
