People Development Portal launched!

It’s finally here! There is now a place on the LSU website where all of our staff can access up-to-date policies, procedures and documents pertaining to working for LSU. Need to know how much maternity leave you are entitled to? There’s a policy for that! Been absent due to illness for less than seven days? There’s a form for that! Have a browse through our People Policies page – these have all been updated recently, and you need to ensure you understand the terms contained within them.

Not only can you now find a policy at the click of the mouse, you can also find some great resources in the Manager’s Toolkit. These resources are aimed at those of us with line management or leadership roles, but are applicable to anyone wishing to develop their employability knowledge and skills.

Finally, we have added a News Feed to this page, where we will post regular updates that you need to be aware of, including Covid updates, policy changes or reminders on upcoming dates (such as submitting claims for Health Shield). As this feed will become our primary method of communication with our staff, we have now changed all web browser homepages to the People Development Portal. If we have critical updates to send to you, we will continue to notify you via your LSU email address, and these updates will also be posted on the portal.

We hope you find this new feature useful. The portal is in its infancy, and we have lots of plans to expand on the content and functionality, so please bear with us whilst it develops. We also encourage and welcome you to send feedback and suggestions to
