Manager's Toolkit

Manager's Toolkit
The Manager’s Toolkit is intended to be a ready resource for the manager in the field.  The Toolkit provides guidance and checklists to assist you in the daily tasks that support employees through their employment life-cycle at Dartmouth College. In addition, you will find documents and links to foundational policies, practices and considerations to which we adhere. If you have a question or concern about using any of the tools contained in the Manager's Toolkit, your first contact should be with your assigned HR Consultant; for other employment-related issues, the Ombuds Office, the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity and the Faculty/Employee Assistance Program are additional resources available to you and your staff.
