The Conservatory believes that employees should be an organization's most important resource. The Conservatory believes that open communication within an atmosphere of mutual trust is of prime importance to its employees. Realizing that effective communication is always a two way street, the Conservatory values employees' constructive opinions and suggestions. Because NEC believes in team effort and an open atmosphere, it encourages an employee to meet and discuss suggestions, problems or concerns with management.
In most cases, talking with one's supervisor is the most effective way to deal with a problem or suggestion. However, an employee may discuss problems or suggestions with a higher level manager instead of, or in addition to, their supervisor. Usually, this would be a more senior level person in your area. (Human Resources can assist you in setting up these lines of communication). This open door policy is not a substitute for the Conservatory's policy against sexual harassment and unlawful discrimination.
