In accordance with our ongoing commitment to helping employees realize their potential and efforts to create a vibrant culture that helps employees succeed, enhances productivity, and values diversity, Human Resources will be running programs and offering services that reflect the continuing changes in our daily lives and improve the remote working experience.
Employee Assistance Program
The New School offers employees and their household members EAP and work/life benefits through Aetna Resources for Living. Inquiries and services are provided at no cost to you and are completely confidential. Visit the website for more information. This service provides you with access to an online library of career and workplace training resources.
All employees have access to LinkedIn Learning thanks to our enterprise subscription, managed by the university’s Libraries and Archives. Additional information can be viewed here.
Mentorship circles are small virtual networking groups facilitated by New School leaders who act as mentors and guides to those within the circle. These circles provide a setting in which participants can network and support one another’s personal and professional growth through monthly discussions about topics ranging from leadership to day-to-day realities of the university. It is up to each circle to decide what they would like to focus on as they meet regularly during the year.
New School Career and Professional
The Career and Professional Development Program is open to employees who are independent contributors interested in enhancing their skills in their current roles and gaining insights into career development. The program teaches
employees to identify and apply strengths, communicate effectively, foster productive workplace relationships, and network across the university.
The program is designed to provide a cohort-style experience for those who are interested in participating in all five sessions, although it is also beneficial to those who would like to register for individual sessions.
