Changes in the administration

As previously announced, Julie Stavnes will resign from her position as Head of Administration for K2 on May 11. The recruitment process for a new Head of Administration is ongoing. Until a new person can take over, Maria Holmaas will work as Head of Administration. I assume she is well known by most having many years of experience in the administration at K2, most recently as Head of the Finance Section. In her absence, Kjetil Haugsvær Dyrkolbotn will act as Head of Finance.

Wishing you a really good weekend!

Lage promofilm?

Har du eller dine kolleger et ønske om en promofilm for et prosjekt?
Kanskje dere sitter på forskningsmateriale som trenger å redigeres?

Studiet for TV-produksjon på Infomedia tar nå oppdrag for UiBs fakulteter og institutt.
De tilbyr tjenester innen filming, redigering, regissering og utforming av videprosjekter. Arbeidet inngår i studiet, og inntektene går til budsjettet for studentenes eksamensfilm.

Reminder holiday registration and important info about plus time

All employees at the University of Bergen must use the Self-Service Portal to register holidays and senior days. Employees who are to register working hours must do so in the Self-Service portal. Registration in the Self-Service Portal ensures that the employees themselves and their managers at all times have a good overview of holidays and flexible working hours, and that these are in accordance with applicable laws, collective agreements and regulations.

The holiday plan for the main holiday period should be available no later than 1 May and applications for summer holidays must therefore be registered in the Self-Service Portal well in advance of this date. The starting point is that all employees must take a minimum of three weeks holiday in the period 1 June – 30 September, and preferably between the two study semesters.

Note in particular that UiB has two settlement dates in 2021, and plus time of more than 50 hours will be deleted on 31.08.21 (postponed from 31.12.20) and 31.12.21. Overtime and travel time are not deleted. It is important that managers follow up by extracting a report in SAP Insights, see «Appendix 2. Absence overview» for user guidance.
