The caring community of Baylor University is supported by the faculty and staff of the Baylor family. While the employees of Baylor develop and serve our students and community, HR Center for Learning & Leadership's focus is to develop and serve our employees.

The HR Center for Learning & Leadership endeavors to build upon the strengths of our managers and employees in order to develop a culture of excellence. We foster an environment of continuous learning, professional growth, and organizational effectiveness through learning and development opportunities and solutions at individual, team and organizational levels. We relate the employee’s work performance to the University’s mission and vision through the staff performance management process and award employees’ individual contributions through our recognition programs.

Education and Training
At Baylor University, we are dedicated to education - including the education of our employees. We believe that lifelong learning of our employees is essential to the fulfillment of Baylor University’s mission and the execution of its vision. Our learning and development opportunities focus on enhancing the core competencies and behaviors of our staff and supervisors. These opportunities include professional development classes and workshops, online programs, and a resource library.  HRCLL also provides customized solutions to address specific areas of development such as communication, team-building, or organizational projects for individuals and work groups.

Performance Evaluation & Planning
Each employee serves an important role in the University and, as a result, is responsible for specific performance objectives. The assessment and development of the execution of those responsibilities in relation to the University’s mission and vision serves as the basis for Baylor’s performance evaluation process. Managing employee performance and development is essential to insuring the excellence of the Baylor experience for faculty, staff, students, and the community. HRCLL equips managers and employees with the tools to complete the annual performance evaluation and conduct ongoing development as part of the performance management process which links performance to pay.

Recognition
As families celebrate each other’s achievements, we celebrate the accomplishments of Baylor employees. Recognition of individual employee contributions exhibits a commitment to excellence and creates a positive, motivating work environment. In HRCLL, we strive to create an atmosphere of appreciation and promote the encouragement of colleagues through our recognition programs.
