Why are employees in positions affected by the Organization Design Initiative being notified over six weeks instead of a shorter timeline?

Final approval of the University’s organizational design plan was given on January 12, 2015. Since then, HR has been working with senior leaders to arrange conversations as quickly as possible. A great deal of care and effort is put into preparing for these meetings in order to share complete information with affected employees when they are notified about their positions. Notification meetings are designed to not only share a high level of detail, but provide answers to employees’ questions, and therefore take more time.
