Advisory Services for Leaders, Managers and Teaching Staff

Hinschauen. Ansprechen. Handeln!

Leaders and managers, including professors and teaching staff with leadership responsibilities, are required to mediate in the event of conflict in their teams, or to take appropriate action when receiving reports of inappropriate behavior in working relationships. The advisory centers will provide assistance in dealing with such situations.

The important thing is to address the situation as early as possible.


We, the HR experts at UZH, can support you as a leader and manager on several levels: HR representatives in the faculties and central services units are your first points of contact when friction arises at the workplace.

For issues that extend beyond your organizational unit and for any potentially larger problems in working relationships, you can contact HR Business Partners at the Human Resources Department. We will address your problem in a one-to-one consultation, propose ways of finding a solution and initiate measures if necessary.

The HR Development team at the Human Resources Department provides skills-training and support to UZH employees, leaders and managers (including professors) in development and leadership matters and helps promote organizational and cultural development at UZH.
