For Managers & Supervisors

As a leader, you’ll need to be aware of benefits, practices, and policies for your direct reports as well as yourself. And you’ll want to take advantage of the many resources we’ve put in place to help you develop your leadership and career skills.

We hope you’ll explore the entire Human Resources website, but the links below will help you quickly find some information especially useful to managers and supervisors.

New Managers

Our getting started page will direct you to resources aimed at helping new managers and supervisors support and manage direct reports, understand JHU policies and practices, and more.


Everything you need to know about pay at JHU, from our job classification system, to salary ranges, and more.

Skills Development

Our leadership learning programs are geared toward your career growth. Many of our professional development courses and compliance courses will help you acquire new skills as well. You also have access to LinkedIn Learning courses with thousands of management-themed titles.

Strategic Support

The university’s Organization Development team works with leaders to develop multiple mechanisms for changing behavior and improving organizational effectiveness.


Got a question about a particular policy or procedure? You’ll find all the information you need in the JHU Policy & Document Library.

Pay special attention to professional development as you set goals with your direct reports—and remind your staff they’re entitled to three days of professional development a year. Then help them make time for the courses, workshops, and other resources they need to achieve their goals.”
