    1. Create career ladders in all job families outside faculty roles.

    2. Require supervisors to undergo yearly training on staff supervision, evaluation, and performance management/motivation.

    3. Require staff evaluations every 6 months.

    4. Create or publicize an existing mechanism for employees to provide feedback to administration on their work experiences.

    5. Ensure all new positions are posted with IU staff only as candidates first; if a qualified internal applicant cannot be found, then open to the public.

    6. Provide sufficient professional development funds and time to use them so that staff can gain important skills, knowledge, and abilities.
