Human Resources Services

As generalists, the HR Services (HRS) team is the principal point of contact for employees throughout their life cycle at St. John’s University. HRS provides guidance and support to managers and employees to facilitate positive work relations, address a variety of issues within departments, such as performance, staffing, employee engagement, workflow, conflict, etc., and put plans in place to improve conditions and enhance service levels. 

In collaboration with leadership, HRS focuses on the University’s priority of retaining talent. By combining workforce analyses with the outcomes of interviews we conduct with current and departing employees, the HRS team assesses and aims to anticipate employees’ needs and challenges and partner effectively with managers to support workforce demands and changes.
