Manager's Toolkit

Dr. Houshmand’s goal is to create an environment where every employee wants to come to work every day. That attitude is not just important but essential if we are to reach the goals that have been set for Rowan University. Each of us must give Rowan University our best each and every day. Our managers are key to achieving that environment.
This webpage was designed to provide the tools that were discussed during the managerial training sessions. Please contact Jeremy Trowsdale (856-256-4291) with any questions.

Performance Management For Managers – This presentation will provide information regarding best practices for completing and delivering performance reviews, as well as explain Rowan’s Managerial Review process from a system/technical perspective.

Recruiting Effective Managers

Supervisor's Checklist When Hiring a New Employee

The checklist below serves as a great tool for making sure you are completing all necessary steps when hiring a new employee. The checklist will assist you throughout the entire hiring process, starting with completing new hire paperwork through 6 months after the employee has started. If you have any questions about specific steps on the checklist, please reference the bottom of the checklist for the appropriate contact information.

The form below is used to discuss and document goals with a New Hire. These goals are in addition to essential duties a manager must complete to be successful. The Managerial Review cycle runs from July 1 – June 30 each year. The new employee’s hire date will determine if this form should be utilized. For further questions, please contact Jeremy Trowsdale.
