You may have seen references made to Cardinal at Work, our new workforce identity designed to create a unified experience of engagement and community.  

Whether you contribute to Stanford’s mission of excellence from a classroom, a laboratory, the campus grounds, an office or online—Cardinal at Work is for you, about you, and created with you in mind.

The Stanford Employee Spirit

Cardinal at Work represents what it means to be a Stanford employee, all 16,000 faculty and staff members whose efforts make this university one of the world's most distinguished research institutions. Our work is about:

  • Meaningful pursuits: We are energized and engaged because the work we do truly matters and contributes to the overall mission of the university
  • Pride: We take great pride in our contributions, which reflect our collective excellence
  • Collaboration & connectedness: Our work requires the purposeful coordination of thousands of bright minds. We work in a collegial manner, through synergistic processes, and always as a team

Your New Online Destination for Employee Information

To enhance your employee experience, we launched the expanded Cardinal at Work website. The website is your new online destination for employee-related information, from benefits to career resources and a multitude of other programs and services to support you.

Equipped with a powerful search and a mobile-responsive design, content is organized around four main topic areas to make it easier for you to navigate and maximize the incredible resources and tools available to you as a Stanford employee: Benefits & Rewards, Learn & Grow, Manage & Lead and Connect.

Get Connected

A great workplace experience includes opportunities to socialize, to learn, to stay healthy together and yes, to have fun. Watch for announcements about upcoming Cardinal at Work events and activities to engage with colleagues on and off campus, join in contests, win prizes and meet up with each other. Be sure to bookmark the Connect section of the new website to view the Cardinal at Work Calendar, employee newsletter and other resources to help you get connected.
