Skidmore College Employee Handbook for Staff

Policies and Practices

Open-door Policy

Skidmore College recognizes that Employees will have suggestions for improving the workplace, as well as concerns about the workplace. The most satisfactory solution to a job-related problem or concern is usually reached through a prompt discussion with your Supervisor. Please feel free to contact your Supervisor with any suggestions and/or concerns.

If you do not feel comfortable contacting your Supervisor or are not satisfied with your Supervisor's response, please contact either your Supervisor's Supervisor or Human Resources regarding your suggestion or concern. Supervisors are encouraged to work with employees to find a solution and Human Resources works to support this process. 

While Skidmore College provides you with this opportunity to communicate your views, please understand that not every concern can be resolved to your satisfaction. Even so, Skidmore College believes that open communication is essential to a successful work environment and all Employees should feel free to raise issues of concern without fear of reprisal.


If you have questions or require additional information with respect to any Handbook content, please contact Human Resources (extension 5800).
