We do this, in part, through
- intentionally selecting candidates for positions where they can use their unique giftings to impact the future of the College
- providing ongoing support and service to employees past and present as they navigate their compensation and benefits offerings
- initiating organizational development efforts to help establish effective teams across campus
- and positively influencing workplace culture.
Our department is dedicated to serving the campus community with excellence, compassion, and integrity in all that we do.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving” ~ Colossians 3:23-24
In line with the mission of the College, our team approaches every interaction and strives to complete every task with excellence. We are consistently learning and measure our processes against industry standards so we can serve the campus community more effectively.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” ~ 1 Peter 4:10
Compassion is more than a value; it is an attitude we strive to embody. Throughout employee life transitions, our team listens attentively and offers ongoing support and assistance. We meet employee needs in a considerate and professional manner, as well as empower employees to make informed decisions for themselves and their loved ones.
“A person may think their own ways are right, but the Lord weighs the heart. To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice” ~ Proverbs 21:2-3
Our department is dedicated to honesty, integrity and equity. These principles govern our practices surrounding employee matters, vendor relationships and data management as we address issues, steward resources and protect the confidentiality of all College employees.
Wheaton College is a Christ centered community. Our statement of faith helps to guide the campus community as an academic institution of faith.
As a Christ centered community, Wheaton College faculty, staff & students seek to uphold the values of the College. The College's community covenant acts as a set of unified beliefs and principles that all members of campus are asked to abide by.
Wheaton is an equal opportunity employer committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse and talented workforce and student body. We encourage the expression of multiple perspectives within a Christian worldview, inside and outside the classroom. Additionally, Wheaton College aspires to provide a physically safe environment for students, staff, and faculty to learn and work. In support of this objective, the College requires background checks for final candidates, after an employment offer is extended. Employment is contingent upon successful completion of a background check.
