The Human Resources Office is a critical component of employee well-being in any business, no matter how small. Our responsibilities include recruitment, hiring, placement, salary and benefits administration, training and development of Associates and compliance to and keeping up to date with governing laws.
We work towards synergistic partnerships and alliances with the various Departments and Offices within the College for purposes of creating, for each and every associate, an environment of trust, continued growth and excellence. It is our belief that under this kind of environment, all of us could drive the College into the future with maximum commitment.
We believe that the primary responsibility of the Human Resources Office is to support line management with the processes, systems, and services needed to optimally manage the human capital. The overall level of people results in an organization clearly depends on the quality of this key partnership between line managers who know and accept their roles and the Human Resources Office who are committed to properly support them.
The main task of the Human Resources Office is to support the School in the achievement of its strategic objectives through:
The Human Resources is a strategic partner and trusted advisor, providing reliable, excellent service, acknowledging that everyone makes a difference. We advocate for diversity and quality work life. We maintain the highest professional standards. We are trustworthy, proactive, and objective in our work, while maintaining compassion and dignity for the individual.
The Human Resources Office is committed in helping develop the College to be an “employer of choice,” which attracts, rewards and retains highly competent and principled associates who are engaged and enabled to help shape and achieve its goals through the development and administration of cost-effective and results-oriented programs, policies, services, and practices.
The Human Resources Office is committed to the following values:
Our belief in integrity demands that each employee conducts himself and takes decisions in accordance with the highest principles of honesty and ethical business practice.
Teamwork means recognizing “team” as not just the work unit an individual belongs to but also all other organizational units.
In practice, teamwork means aligning personal interests and objectives with those of the team, and in some instances, even subordinating personal interests and objectives. It is involving concerned individuals or units in decisions and projects relevant to them. It is teaching, speaking for, and supporting one another.
Professionalism is manifested by taking accountability for all aspects of our duties and ensuring that these are discharged in accordance with the highest possible standards. It is recognizing that our employment in the College is a personal choice, and we must therefore provide the organization what is rightfully due in terms of performance and productivity.
Professionalism means managing work-related differences so that all these do not affect interpersonal relationships. It is driving one’s own holistic development and continuous growth in competence. In our daily interaction with others, this means treating them with the highest norms of courtesy. It is dealing with others fairly and sincerely. It is showing proper regard to individuals’ use of time by keeping appointments, arriving at, starting and ending meetings on time. It means creating a work environment that develops and maintains a skilled, well informed and equitably rewarded workforce.
This means identifying both internal and external customers and knowing their requirements; designing systems and policies to meet customers’ needs on a continuing basis in accordance with established service standards; and, keeping the customer informed throughout the transaction, especially if deviations occur, and being responsible for him until his needs are met.
Excellence is unceasingly seeking and realizing the highest professional and personal standards in all we do. It means possessing a constant positive discontent with the status quo that drives us to find a better way than what is currently accepted as “the best way”. It is constantly seeking to outdo ourselves by achieving more and better than our prior accomplishments.
Recruitment or employment services is concerned with attracting the most qualified associates and matching them to the jobs for which they are best suited. HR associates recruit (internally or externally), screen, and interview job applicants. They may also check references and extend job offers. Similarly, they conduct orientation sessions and arrange on-the-job training for new associates.
Employment services is also concerned with managing the attrition of associates. HR associates conduct exit interviews for purposes of determining the underlying reasons for employees’ resignation. In this way, management is able to maintain the turnover rate at a reasonable level through the implementation of appropriate HR interventions.
The school recognizes that training offers a way to develop skills, enhance productivity and quality of work, build associates loyalty to the Institute, and most importantly, increase individual and organizational performance to achieve business results.
