New Personnel System Website

 The 2011-13 biennial budget (Act 32 of 2011) created s. 36.115, authorizing and directing the development of two distinct new personnel systems (human resource related policies and procedures) separate from the existing personnel system under ch. 230, one for all UW-Madison employees and one for the balance of all University of Wisconsin System employees. These new personnel systems will encompass policies and procedures for both unclassified and classified employment categories.  A website has been developed to communicate the development of this new system, which is located at http://web.uwsa.edu/personnelsystems/.

Work groups covering the topics of benefits, compensation, employee environment, employee movement, employee categories and recruitment and assessment have recently been established to obtain feedback about potential policies and procedures for the new system. The following UW-Green Bay employees are serving on four of these work groups:  

Benefits – Cliff Abbott, Secretary of the Faculty and Academic Staff and Professor in Computing Science

Compensation – Sheryl Van Gruensven, Director of Human Resources

Employee Movement – Eileen Kolb, Advisor, Registrar Office

Employment Categories – Joe Schoenebeck, Laboratory Preparation Technician, NAS

Please review the University Personnel Systems website for general information, additional information on the workgroups and the timeline for implementation of the new personnel structures. This website will be updated regularly as new information becomes available.

Please contact Human Resources at hr@uwgb.edu or ext. 2390 if you have any questions.
