Created by Engineering
The original version of the Supervisor Toolkit was developed by a team of supervisors from the Engineering Division in partnership with their Senior HR Division Partner.
The team’s charge was to produce a resource with useful and practical suggestions for new and experienced Engineering supervisors. The toolkit was designed to help them be more consistent, efficient and effective during their interactions with their employees and partners in other divisions.
The team reviewed supervisory best practices spanning many industries (including scientific research, government, hi-tech, manufacturing and health care). These best practices were then customized to reflect Berkeley Lab’s work environment in general and the unique responsibilities and challenges Engineering supervisors encounter every day in their project and matrix work.
Adapted by Berkeley Lab Learning Institute for All Laboratory Supervisors
Berkeley Lab Learning Institute adapted the content of the Supervisor Toolkit and made it relevant and accessible to all supervisors at Berkeley Lab.
An additional opportunity is available for divisions. Divisions can create division-specific content to help their supervisors address unique supervisory challenges, such as managing in a matrix or user facility environment.

If your division would like to develop tailored content, contact your local HR Division Contact.
