WSU Compliance Training

For WSU to operate in compliance with state and federal laws and protect itself and the WSU community from unnecessary harm, it is critical for employees to understand their responsibilities. Required trainings are designed to educate you on your role in maintaining a compliant workplace.

Visit the HRS website for information about Required Trainings: Employee Rights & Responsibilities Under Executive Policy #15, Ethics in Public Service, Hazing Prevention, Cyber Security Awareness, and Safety Training. Employees may have additional trainings required for their specific roles. Supervisors should ensure their staff have completed all required trainings.

Employees can view their required assignments in Percipio, by going to the homepage or clicking the “My Profile” circle in the top right corner and selecting “Assignments” from the dropdown menu. For questions about accessing Percipio or identifying your learning administrators, contact HRS Training.


Voiland College Career Services is excited to announce a new opportunity for our students to take part in short-term, professional, paid work experiences through Micro-Internships. These project-centered experiences are perfect for students with hectic or irregular schedules – most can be completed remotely, typically involve 10 to 40 hours of work, and are deadline-driven as opposed to set during specific hours. Encourage your students to set up their profile through the VCEA Parker Dewey site and start applying today!

Do You Know Percipio?

In addition to any required trainings, employees have up to 96 hours of paid time for elective trainings, and HRS Percipio offers hundreds of easy-to use training courses online! From learning Excel to excelling in leadership, check out all the courses available to you on the WSU HRS website.

Nominate a Colleague for the Crimson Spirit Award

Do you know a WSU employee who is exceptionally creative in problem-solving or who consistently goes above and beyond? Nominate that WSU employee for the Crimson Spirit Award today!

Be Safe Cougs

Summer Series on Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction

The WSU WellCoug Program is excited to let you know of a 10-session summer series, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, provided by Robin Bond and Trymaine Gaither.The program has shown to help participants with addressing chronic pain, anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, general stress, and stress-related health issues. The sessions will include guided instruction in mindfulness practices, gentle stretching, didactic presentations, and group discussions in a safe and engaging setting. Daily home practices will be assigned for outside of class.

Wellness Wednesday Remote Yoga & Stretching

System-wide Wellness Wednesday Remote Yoga & Stretching will be offered weekly until June 12. In this low-intensity yoga class we will modify and conduct all poses and stretches while seated, making this a great option for beginners or those needing additional support. This is also suitable for those wanting to supplement their workday with a quick midday mindfulness and stretching break, perhaps in the convenience of an office chair. We will work to build strength, flexibility, mindfulness, and complete our yoga practice feeling resilient and refreshed. Send an email to APAC if you would like to be invited to the occurring meeting series.
