Hot Topics

Pursuant to its mission of promoting NDSU's success particularly in the areas of employee development and education, the Office of Human Resources and Payroll regularly offers in-person "Hot Topics" sessions to help keep employees updated on institutional and system office policy, changes in state and federal law impacting HR/Payroll, recommendations for maintaining a productive workforce and other areas of related interest for NDSU employees.

While employees are welcomed and encouraged to take part in the face to face sessions, the reality of working in such a dynamic and geographically diverse campus is that not everyone is able to attend in person. The video resources on this page are provided as a resource for individuals interested in referencing these sessions on-demand.

If you have questions or suggestions for additional Hot Topics, please contact NDSU's HR/Payroll director, Colette Erickson.
