Special Interest Group on Staff Management
This Special Interest Group gives the leaders in RMA the opportunity to strengthen the quality and effect of their work by meeting and discussing topics and issues related to personnel management in a specific RMA context.
Motivation and background
DARMA’s SIG for Staff Management was established by DARMA’s Board in the autumn of 2013 and held its first meeting January 2014. The purpose of this SIG is to give the leaders in the Danish RMA context an opportunity to strengthen the quality and effect of their work by meeting and discussing topics and issues related to personnel management in our profession. Examples of topics can be:
- Staff development
- Management of knowledgeable employees
- Organizational development
- Personnel responsibility
- Organization of a research support office
- Management information
The SIG is the formal framework for our joint forum, in which managers of or in Danish research support offices can meet for the above purposes.
The SIG is run by an alternating facilitator, who ensures that meetings are convened, the agenda is broadcast and that documents are uploaded to the network’s area on DARMA’s website. The board liaison can be helpful in posting material on the website, etc.
Finances and resources
This SIG meets 2-3 times a year as needed. The meetings are held online or in-person and the agenda as well as the time and place for the next meeting are agreed from time to time.
The SIG does not have its own budget or finances. Expenses for meals in connection with meetings can be covered by DARMA by prior agreement with the Treasurer. Travel expenses are borne by the individual members themselves (usually covered by their home institutions).
How do I become a member of the SIG Staff Management
To be a member of the SIG on Staff Management you must be a member of DARMA, and you must have a management function with personnel responsibilities within RMA. Personnel management is defined in this context as holding ‘MUS’.
DARMA’s President can attend the meetings regardless of whether he or she has management responsibility or not.
Contact the board liaison if you would like to become a member of the SIG on Staff Management.
