Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend, giving you an extra hour — which means you have plenty of time to check out the stories recently featured in Headlines!

There was a closer look at the Employee Referral Program, which offers faculty and staff up to $1,500 should someone they refer be hired by the organization; HITS outlined how it plans to upgrade nearly 50,000 Outlook accounts; team members shared photos from their Halloween celebrations; and readers learned how the Emergency Department is improving its care delivery.

In case you missed anything, here’s the latest:

Earn $1,500 for knowing the right people

Faculty and staff can earn up to $1,500 if they refer their family members, friends, neighbors or acquaintances to eligible high-demand jobs at Michigan Medicine. From call center representatives to custodians, pharmacy technicians and more, there are plenty of great positions available across the organization.

Get ready for a new Outlook! Coming now through mid-December

Over the next few weeks, Health Information Technology & Services (HITS) will be upgrading approximately 48,000 Outlook accounts from onsite servers to the cloud. This marks the first major step in making the full Microsoft 365 experience available to everyone at Michigan Medicine. Learn what you can expect between now and mid-December.

Faculty, staff carry out spook-tacular celebrations

Some colleagues dressed up as characters from Napoleon Dynamite. Others turned their Zoom meeting into a Monopoly board (with every teammate representing a different boardgame space). Those were just a few of the creative Halloween celebrations that took place over the past couple of weeks at Michigan Medicine. Check out a photo gallery from the festivities!

A lens into the emergency room

When caring for patients in the emergency room, there’s often little time to learn about someone or their background. And that could lead to situations where clinicians may dismiss or make assumptions about patients from backgrounds that are not similar to their own.
