Recruitment, Hiring, & Transferring Policies

Duke's policies on recruiting, hiring, and transferring to other positions within the Duke community are designed to provide a fair and equitable process resulting in the appropriate match of a staff member's skills, knowledge, and experience with a given position's job requirements. This hiring and transferring process includes the following priorities:

  • To identify and attract qualified and diverse applicants
  • To give preference to qualified Duke staff - particularly to those who are affected by a reduction-in-force, layoff, or return-to-work due to worker’s compensation
  • To encourage the career growth of current staff
