Years ago DeVry University created the TEACH values. These values were created to serve as the guiding value system for all of DeVry Education Group. These values 'centered' around teamwork, employee focus, accountability, continuous improvement and helping students. Then in 2010 new federal legislation and recruitment practices were mandated into law,. Basically these laws protected student facing employees so they could not be managed by performance measures. At this time, DeVry tries to comply and enrollment tanks. DeVry then begins to manipulate the definitions of the 'TEACH' values to mask their renewed management of performance measures.
Over my career, I saw and was a part of performance appraisals where these TEACH measures definitions were so stretched in order to build written documentation cases against employees marked to be 'managed out' by either local or home office leadership. These reviews often made no sense and in many cases were not true. If you questioned a review then you were labeled a troublemaker and the scrutiny would intensify. Eventually, when enough written documentation was created, the person's recommendation for termination would go to an HR panel for a final decision to terminate. Looking back it was such a dysfunctional environment that I wonder why anyone would want or stay to work for this company.
When I see layoff after layoff it makes me wonder if DVG Leadership are being held to the same TEACH values? Obviously they are not, and these pyrannas continue to inflate their own bank accounts while destroying the livelihood of the people really doing the work thus driving DeVry into the ground. Good luck servicing whatever students that still attend.
How long until DeVry's graduation rate plummets to 25% or less? DeVry Leadership is simply pathetic.
