Employee Engagement & Success

Employee Engagement & Success means ensuring all HSU employees—faculty, stateside and auxiliary staff, administrators, and student employees—have what they need to be involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their work and to HSU. Their success is supported throughout their experience with HSU, from recruitment through departure.
