Services & Programs

Workforce Strategies

We work directly with department managers as they recruit, hire, and train their workforce; help establish positive leadership and management practices; and connect departments and employees with other HR services as needed.


We ensure Tufts employees and their families have a full host of health, wellness, counseling, and financial benefits and services.


We establish and maintain the university’s pay plan to ensure Tufts attracts and retains talented faculty and staff.

Learning and Development

We offer training programs that help employees succeed in their current jobs and have opportunities for professional growth.


How We Work with Tufts Support Services

Human Resources and Tufts Support Services (TSS) work together closely to address the needs of Tufts staff, faculty, and students.

TSS is a campus organization staffed by Tufts employees who are the first point of contact for many human resources and benefits needs. When you need to sign up for benefits, change your benefits, on-board a new employee, or have a question about payroll, please contact TSS.
