New Personnel System

New Personnel System (Human Resource Related Policies and Procedures)

The 2011-13 biennial budget (Act 32 of 2011) created s. 36.115, authorizing and directing the development of personnel systems (human resource related policies and procedures) separate and distinct from the personnel system under ch. 230 for all University of Wisconsin-Madison employees and separately a personnel system for the balance of all University of Wisconsin System employees.  The new personnel system will encompass policies and procedures for both unclassified and classified employment categories.

As with any business change, one of the most important steps is to assess the current state in order to effectively build the future state.  The assessment of the current personnel systems will rest primarily with the institutions.  Each of the institutions is in the best position to judge what, in the current personnel systems, prohibits its ability to manage effectively its workforce. The institutions’ assessments of current state problems, symptoms and limitations will serve as a starting point to begin building the framework of the future state of the new personnel systems.

We are looking for your assistance in outlining issues you can see within the process.  Two informational sessions have been scheduled for all employees to attend to learn about this initiative on the following dates and times:

Monday, October 3rd at 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. in the Alumni Rooms, University Union

Tuesday, October 4th at 2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. in the Alumni Rooms, University Union

If you plan to attend one of these sessions, rsvp at

Feedback outlining current issues will be due to no later than October 24, 2011.  Your feedback should be in response to the following two guidelines:

1. Current state problem, symptom or limitation  (example:  Number of candidates required to interview is too many in classified search)

2. What is the impact of the problem, symptom or limitation  (example:  Need to stay competitive in hiring the best workforce possible.  The number of candidates to interview can be prohibitively time consuming.)
