After three months of Microsoft-Teams meetings and working from home, the Ministry of Justice has announced in a press release that public institutions in eastern Denmark can reopen from next week.

“I am very happy to tell you that all employees can return to CBS from Monday June 15, following the decision by Government,” says Kirsten Winther Jørgensen, the University Director of CBS, in a statement on CBS Share and continues:

“We are looking very much forward to seeing you on campus again!”

Currently, only PhD Fellows, researchers whose research requires their physical presence and employees with critical duties are allowed on campus. So when the rest of the staff return, CBS will look more like itself once again.

“Public employees are a foundation stone of Danish society, and I believe that many people are excited about returning to their workplaces,” says the Minister for Justice, Nick Hækkerup, in a press release.

According to the statement on CBS Share, the reopening of CBS will be guided by health authority guidelines, and more information will follow during the next couple of days.

The Ministry of Justice announcement refers to a set of guidelines for the responsible reopening of public offices. For example, the guidelines call for continued use of working from home as well as staggered working hours, and stipulate that safe distances must be maintained between employees.

According to Kirsten Winther Jørgensen, that work must be arranged with immediate managers.

More details about the current guidelines referred to by the Ministry are available here (in Danish)

    Layoffs break the crucial trust between organisation and employee

    CBS is laying off a number of employees soon, which will affect our university in different ways. When employees are fired without having done anything wrong, it shatters the trust between the organisation and employees, while also taking a toll on productivity, according to a CBS expert. Layoffs also affect the ‘survivors’, who are forced to adapt to a changed workload and the loss of cherished colleagues.

    Here’s what you need to know about the master’s reform

    The political parties behind the master’s reform have adjusted their original proposal to shorten or reorganize up to 50 percent of master’s programmes after pressure from CBS and the other Danish universities. Fewer shortened master’s and longer to implement changes are some important revisions to the reform. CBS’ president is pleased that the government and other parties behind the reform have listened to some of the critique given by the universities but raises concern about cutting more study places in bachelor’s programmes.
