Development Day

Refresh 2024 will be held Tuesday, March 19.

Plan. Declutter. Organize. Catch Up.



Take a Panther pause to recharge and refocus. Refresh is an employee planning day where employees can declutter their files, organize their workspace, catch up on training, complete projects, and more. Wear comfortable clothing and footwear.



Ideas for the Day

  • Organize digital files so that they are easily accessible
  • Declutter your workspace or organize shelving.
  • Remove the crumbs from your keyboard (you know what we’re talking about)
  • Audit records/files or update your workspace and mail station in Workday.
  • Shred records that have passed their retention period (follow up with supervisor before shredding)
  • Review papers and items to determine whether you will keep, recycle, discard, or donate
  • Catch up on filing, filter emails or take inventory of supplies.
  • Purge storage items. Get rid of pens, markers, and highlighters that no longer work
  • And… do not forget all the items under your desk
