Welcome to Human Resources

Our Commitment of Service to SPH Employees

The Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health is more than just a place to work. As an organization, we are a global citizen, committed to advancing health world-wide. That commitment starts here, with our employees’ well-being.

The Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health offers an enriching and supportive community, with abundant programs, services, and tools to help you address challenges and achieve goals at work and in life. SPH Human Resources’ mission is to be a proactive and strategic partner with the SPH community in terms of how to recruit, manage, compensate, reward, and develop employees so that we can most effectively support the School’s strategic priorities.
