Resources for Managers

Here we have compiled all necessary instructions and links to processes that you may need as a manager.

 

Tools & Resources for Managers

ADMINISTRATIVE RECRUITMENT 

Please consult the Administrative Recruitment Policy Job Aid for the process of recruiting an administrative employee (officer or support staff level). Further instructions and details can be found in the Administrative Recruitment Guide. 

TEMPORARY STAFF RECRUITMENT

Please submit a list of job responsibilities and minimum requirements to hr@law.columbia.edu, to begin a search for a temporary employee.

The most critical stage of the onboarding process is how you, the manager, prepare for a new employee. To ensure a smooth transition for both the department and a new employee, we have compiled a checklist to assist with the onboarding process. We hope you find this checklist useful in planning for the arrival of your new employee.  

  • As a manager, you may be responsible for reviewing and approving timesheets and absence requests for your direct reports. You can view the Training Guide for additional information or the Job Aid for step-by-step instructions.   
  • You have the ability to delegate your review and approval authority to another manager (a proxy) within your School/Admin unit. Delegation periods should not exceed 3 months. For more information and instructions, see the Job Aid
  • If any Officers are a direct report for you, you are responsible for approving their Quarterly Closeout. Information and closeout dates are available in the Job Aid
