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.

Talent Acquisition Manager (TAM)

Beginning on February 20th, 2012, unclassified search and screens, adjunct faculty and Limited Term Employee (LTE) recruitments will be handled in Talent Acquisition Manager (TAM), which is a module of HRS.  Once implemented, TAM will have a considerable impact on the way recruitments are handled.  The system will change the way that candidates apply for positions, will provide convenience for users, and reduce the need for the use of paper.  TAM will greatly streamline and modernize the current processes.  Please note that recruitments for classified permanent positions are not going to be conducted in TAM.

TAM brings a variety of new opportunities in the way recruitments are handled including:

  • Security which ensures that applicant data is protected
  • Decreased amount of paper use and reduced likelihood that files are misplaced or lost
  • Real time applicant status monitoring with the use of applicant tracking
  • Increased chances of attracting quality candidates by providing an online application process
  • Reduces UW’s carbon footprint by creating a paperless application process

To learn more about the functionality of TAM and how it will impact you, please attend one of the following informational sessions: 

Date:          Wednesday, February 8th, 2012
Time:         10:00 – 11:00 a.m. or 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Date:         Friday, February 10th, 2012
Time:        11:00 a.m. – Noon
