Tasks of the department

AU HR, Development and Work Environment contributes actively and in a targeted manner to the development of a close cooperation between small and large units, their efficiency and results - wherever it creates the most value in relation to the goals and core activities of AU.  AU HR, Development and Work Environment supports the management and the organisation based on a holistic view in order to contribute to the balance between core activities, goals, organisation, resources, and people in each unit and across AU.

The unit also offers relevant “non-academic” competency development and learning programmes for AU’s managers and employees. Academic competency development programmes are developed and offered by the department’s centres for university pedagogics and didactics. 

Furthermore, the unit arranges a series of management development programmes and courses which focus on specific management tools. 

The unit also offers advisory services and guidance for the HR departments in the four administration centres.
