Consolidation of Services

In order to improve the efficiency and speed of the recruitment process on campus and provide improved customer service, the Employment Services and the Classification and Compensation units merged into one unit. By building and deploying consistent and streamlined processes we have been able to make significant progress in the acceleration of the recruitment process with vancanies being posted and filled in a shorter period of time.

This newly formed unit has had the opportunity to streamline processes, update forms and reduce duplication of effort. For example, Staff Action Forms (SAFs) are now sent directly to Employment where final approval and signatures are obtained from Vice Presidents by sending a complete employment packet for them to review. Vice Presidents are now able to authorize employment via an electronic process which ensures they are aware of employment decisions prior to offers being extended.
