I have a new staff member starting next Monday. I’m excited to have him join, not least because it’s a totally new position that will bring in some skills we’ve needed for a while. BUT, because of an HR rule that new staff must be trained in person, it means I will have to be in the office five days a week for several weeks. I’m trying my best not to get overly gloomy about this. It doesn’t help that I’m already in a very busy, high-pressure time as we enter the last two months of a two-year long re-write of our endowment management system. And we’ve just started budget construction for our next fiscal year–and it’s a new process. And we’ve reorganized the department. And we’re adding four new staff members. And we’ll go straight from deploying the new endowment management system straight into audit. And … and … whew, it’s a lot. I have no point to make here; just complaining.
