From now on, Wageningen UR’s secretaries have their own network: netWURk. The new club was launched last week on National Secretaries’ Day in the presence of a hundred secretaries and executive board member Tijs Breukink.
The aim of the new club is mainly to enable them to make use of each other’s expertise and experience. An important aid is therefore the teamsite, a new website containing all kinds of useful information for secretaries, from manuals, meeting rooms and workshops to announcements, photos and a diary. The forum is a key element in the site.
The netWURk is an initiative by seven secretaries from Facilities and Services, AFSG and Rikilt. Spokesperson Anneke Bammens (F&S) was surprised by the turnout. She says the new club is more than just a get-together. ‘We want to act as a point of contact and to be consulted, for example when they are about to buy new software. We’d like to give our opinion on the matter.’
