Manager's Toolbox


Approximately 60 percent of NDSU’s operating budget is invested in the people who work here.  People are the most valuable asset at NDSU.  The role of the manager is perhaps the most important in creating a supportive work environment where people can function at their highest potential to advance NDSU's mission.

Below are just a few examples of how your role as a manager helps impact recruitment, productivity, retention and job satisfaction:   

  • Hiring the right people.
  • Supporting your staff members so they can develop and reach their potential.
  • Setting goals and challenge staff to reach beyond their current grasp.
  • Reinforcing with your staff how what they do contributes to and makes a difference in advancing NDSU as a student-focused, land-grant, research university.
  • Recognizing and rewarding your staff's accomplishments.
  • Holding staff members accountable for not meeting expected performance or behavior standards.
  • Ensuring a safe work environment.
  • Communicating information that impacts your staff's job, benefits or employment policies.
  • Providing context and rationale for institutional or departmental changes.
