The employee analytics dashboard presents data on employee demographics at Boise State University. This dashboard reflects employees that were active at the start of the month. Human Resources will refresh the dashboard with new data at the start of each month.

Employee Assistance Program resources

The holidays can feel different for everyone.  For some, it can be a fun and happy time full of excitement and celebration, while for others it can be a time of sorrow, loneliness and depression. If an employee is struggling withe mental health challenges the Employee Assistance Program is available to benefit-eligible employees and their eligible dependents.
