Mission: Human Resources Development supports the process of organizational development and develops suitable strategies and measures that enable employees to continue to contribute to the success of JLU. In view of the increasing autonomy of universities and the growing competition among universities, JLU as an organization must continually position itself strategically and develop further. The PE supports this process of organizational development and develops appropriate strategies and measures that enable employees to continue to contribute to the success of JLU. In addition to the development goals of JLU, the PE also takes into account the needs of all employees. In this sense, personnel development at JLU includes all systematically designed structures, processes and offers that serve to qualify employees according to their abilities, needs and goals, to inspire them to work at JLU, and to enable their personal and professional development through the development of supportive conditions. Further information on this can be found in the JLU personnel development concept.
