Learning and Development

We look to provide opportunities for employees to grow and thrive in their careers. Since our organizational priority starts with Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Belonging, and Accessibility, we look to integrate this focus into our programs and offerings. We do this by prioritizing leadership development in various ways, including online workshops (synchronous and asynchronous), promoting NYU enterprise opportunities (via NYU iLearn, or our partnership with reputable organizations such as Academic Impression and LinkedIn Learning).

Employee Engagement

Our employee experience is our sole focus. We influence and reinforce our organizational culture through several engagements throughout the year, including our Onboarding Meeting, New Hires Meet and Greet, supporting Affinity Groups as needed, recognition of service milestones in our annual Service Recognition event, and an array of other events throughout the year.

Organizational Development & Culture

Change is the only constant in our lives, and as such, our HR department must keep attuned to changes internally and externally. We partner with managers and employees to manage these changes and how we can ensure that our principles of IDBEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Belonging, Equity, and Accessibility) and our focus on our employee experience are consistent regardless of the circumstances. These changes shape our culture, and we want to help all employees actively create a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive work environment for all.
