Employee Resources

As COVID-19 impacts business as usual for the School, we ask that staff review the guidance and communications tools below to help transition to remote working.

There are also two useful courses available in Bridge, which have been shared via email, titled Coping with Uncertainty Surrounding the Coronavirus and Best Practices for Managing and Working Remotely.​ If you have questions about payroll and accounts payable, please review this document.

In fall 2020, we hosted a workplace wellness webinar with the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The webinar provided knowledge, tools, and self-care strategies to support mental health and wellness for yourself and your colleagues, teams, and family. Click here for resources shared during the session.

For additional questions, staff may reach out to the following contacts in Human Resources:

  • Irina Melnik, director of employee benefits, at imelnik@artic.edu or 312.629.3382
  • Antoinette Murril, director of employee relations and training, amurril@artic.edu or 312.629.3380

As a reminder, the Art Institute (both the School and museum) has an excellent resource in ComPsych, part of our Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Counselors are available 24/7 to confidentially address concerns you and/or members of your family may have. For additional information about the EAP or any other benefits, please reach out to the HR Benefits Team at 312.629.3382.
