Human Resources

Welcome to Reed’s Office of Human Resources

Together, our employees strive to make Reed one of the best places to work in Portland.

What does HR do?

HR helps employees and supervisors with recruiting, pay, benefits, and professional development. While we make recommendations, we do not make decisions about hiring, pay, promotion, or termination—supervisors, department directors and vice-presidents/deans do this.

HR fosters good communication among employees, maintains a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace, and helps supervisors improve their leadership and team building skills.

If you talk with HR, you may opt to keep the conversation confidential. Please point out when you would like confidentiality versus when you request for us to take some action. HR cannot offer confidentiality if you share information about illegal or prohibited activity or when someone is in physical danger.
