As a manager, you have a significant impact on the professional experiences of the employees you supervise. You have the responsibility to build your organization, create staffing plans, recruit and hire new employees, develop your team, conduct performance evaluations, and address a wide range of employee relations issues that may arise.
You should think of your HR Consultant as your first point of contact. Your HR Consultant can provide strategic guidance to help you meet your hiring needs, restructure your unit, and build successful employer-employee relationships. Your HR Consultant can also direct you to additional skilled HR specialists as needed, and will ensure that any management actions are in compliance with University policies, as well as applicable state and federal employment and labor laws.
