Biola University’s Human Resources department exists to equip and empower employees to educate and serve students. Human Resources’ role is one of support, education, guidance and encouragement. Each Biola faculty and staff employee, regardless of position, strives to have a growing, vibrant, daily relationship with Jesus Christ, utilizing God’s Word to govern every part of his/her life.

The following “Employment Cornerstones” are intended to frame how employees operate as individual contributors and as a guide for management decision-making. Therefore, we will:

Honor God We do our jobs as working unto the Lord, providing our best efforts and seeking excellence.
Value Others We regard fellow employees, students, and other constituents as brothers and sisters in Christ, respecting and valuing the ethnic and cultural diversity that enriches our community.
Share Resources We commit to share information and resources with other employees/departments to maximize service to constituents.
Provide Proper Tools We provide adequate resources to accomplish job expectations, while we encourage each other to keep God first in our lives, maintaining a healthy balance of work and personal activities.
Consider Other Viewpoints We consider the views and opinions of others in making decisions. After significant decisions are made, we are thorough in explaining the basis for the decisions.
Compensate Employees Fairly We recognize that employees are Biola’s most valued resources; therefore we provide salaries and benefit packages that are competitive with Biola’s peer universities.
Foster Employee Growth We encourage the professional and spiritual growth of employees by providing appropriate professional development, training, and guidance. Supervisors will be trained and equipped to lead.
Be Accountable We operate both as individuals and as an organization with the highest levels of honesty and integrity. We are accountable for our decisions, actions, and behavior.
Apply Biblical Stewardship We demonstrate sound biblical stewardship regarding the use of the financial, human, environmental and capital resources with which we have been entrusted.
