Values

Caltech’s Human Resources department has an essential and integral role at the Institute. As Caltech ambassadors it is important that we (1) understand and reflect the core mission of the Institute; (2) continually train, educate and teach ourselves and others; and (3) strive to build a healthy, resilient and engaged community.

Human Resources has three core values that represent what is important and necessary to help us fulfill our Institute role: integrity, collaboration and excellence.

We are committed to advancing the Institute’s distinguished reputation by attracting, recruiting, and supporting individuals who have extraordinary curiosity, talent, and energy.

We do this by

  • Training and developing staff
  • Thoughtfully and strategically promoting the Institute
  • Supporting the business goals of Caltech organizational units
  • Facilitating communication and fostering relationships among constituents
  • Providing a healthy work environment and work/life resources 

Here at Caltech, we believe in a total-reward philosophy, so we offer our employees competitive compensation packages, competitive health and welfare benefits, and exceptional retirement benefits as well as an engaging work environment, work/life balance, and training, development, and promotional opportunities.
