USC Employee Communications

USC’s Employee Communications department¬†oversees and operates the Employee Gateway as well as other communications designed for staff and faculty. Employee Communications is also responsible for overseeing university policy development and communication, as well as the websites related to Human Resources (including Talent Management,¬†Benefits, Equity and Diversity, Human Resources Administration, the Manager Gateway, and the HR Professional Portal, among others). Employee Communications also manages employee appreciation and recognition efforts, among them the annual Staff Celebration Luncheon and the New Trojans Network for new employees.

Our departmental mission for the Employee Gateway is to inform, engage and inspire employees, facilitating conversations and collaboration that enhance productivity, while providing creative, compelling, concise and clear content – as well as providing a gateway to everything a USC faculty or staff member will ever need.
