Manager Resources

Manager Resources

As a manager at the Harvard School of Public Health, your role is crucial to your staff’s success – and to HSPH’s success as well. Your judgment steers our hiring decisions, and your encouragement helps new employees become familiar and engaged with the HSPH community. Day by day, your actions and leadership motivate and guide your staff to excel at their jobs and pursue their goals. Overall, your commitment to both HSPH and your staff is vital to maintaining the productive and rewarding community that drew you and others to our School.

We recognize that you have many responsibilities in addition to those of being a manager. For this reason, we’re happy to provide tools and resources (including consultation with an HR professional at any time) to help you supervise and lead those who report to you.  On these pages you’ll find help in handling the various tasks of managing, such as posting a position, navigating the performance management process,  dealing with leaves of absence,  and developing staff.   Also, because we look to today’s managers to transform and lead HSPH into the future, we offer Leadership Development programs especially aimed at managers.
