Employee Relations Philosophy
Since its founding, The College of New Jersey has enjoyed open and direct communication with employees. We believe skills and abilities are enhanced by good working relationships, which, in turn, contribute to the foundation of a strong and healthy college. You will find we take our responsibility to provide good working conditions, pay, benefits, and personal growth and development opportunities very seriously.
We believe in the dignity of each employee and expect you to treat others with fairness, respect, and openness. We incorporate the Mission of the College into our employee relations practices. Direct communication is strongly encouraged between you and your supervisor. Such communication is likely to enhance understanding and create rapid solutions to problems. Your open communication with your supervisor also enhances the ability of TCNJ to recognize exemplary contributions you make to the success of the College.
To support this philosophy, the Office of Human Resources has established the following goals:
- To promote, encourage and strengthen communication between employees and management at all levels.
- To promote and safeguard the proper application of College policies.
- To establish and heighten mutual trust and acceptance within the campus community.
- To provide confidential, fair, reliable and effective resolutions in a timely fashion.
The Office of Human Resources respects the privacy of the employee and treats conferences with the fullest degree of confidentiality. Additional information regarding Employee Relations Services may be obtained by contacting extension 2282.
Copies of applicable contracts/agreements will be issued to new employees during their New Employee Orientation.
