In response to employee-generated suggestions as part of the campuswide “Quick Fix” campaign, the Human Resources Office has implemented “Quick Fix Initiative #99 – Facilitate volunteer service by employees.” HR created a web page which promotes volunteer opportunities for employees both on campus and in the community. At the HR homepage, see the Employee Quick Links column and click on the link “Volunteer Opportunities.” You’ll find links to resources in the community, such as the Volunteer Center of Brown County, and volunteer opportunities here at our University, such as helping the Institute for Learning in Retirement. You will also find a featured volunteer opportunity, as well as seven good reasons to volunteer!
Contact Human Resources at email@example.com or 465-2390 with any questions or comments.

University officials and the Human Resources office are calling attention to University of Wisconsin-Green Bay faculty and staff and their outstanding and dedicated service. The following is excerpted from the Governor’s Proclamation:
“…I, Jim Doyle, Governor of the State of Wisconsin, do hereby proclaim Wednesday, May 5, 2010, as State Employee Recognition Day in the State of Wisconsin. I commend employees of the State of Wisconsin and call on all citizens to recognize the accomplishments and commitment of those who work on our behalf.”

Please see the Furlough Information page on the Human Resources website for details. Please refer to your e-mailed earning statement to determine your remaining FTO. The remaining FTO hours listed on your earning statement includes the mandatory fixed furlough day on Friday, May 28, 2010. Employees who are unable to take this mandatory furlough day will need to select an alternative date. If your pay is reduced only as the FTO is taken, your furlough days must be taken in the 2009-10 fiscal year. Classified staff members must use FTO for the 2009-10 fiscal year by June 19, 2010. Unclassified staff members must use FTO for the 2009-10 fiscal year by June 30, 2010. Generally, the maximum number of FTO hours that can be taken in one week is eight, so it will be helpful to plan ahead. Please contact Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 2390 if you have questions.
As announced in the LOG on February 10th, the UW System’s Human Resource System (HRS) project is well underway, and you will be hearing more about the new HRS in the coming months. The current system has been in place since approximately 1975, and the system’s operational lifetime is nearing its end. HRS is a new integrated system for all human resources, benefits and payroll operations across all University of Wisconsin campuses. This modern system will help us standardize business practices, improve service to our employees, and ensure higher levels of data integrity in all our business practices and external reporting. It will consolidate hundreds of redundant campus systems into a single, reliable system, and provide employees with direct access to their own payroll and benefits information. The new system will also provide greater security for sensitive personal data such as social security numbers. For more information regarding HRS, please see the Human Resources website.
The Office of Human Resources would like to announce that we have redesigned our website! We hope that you find the new website easier to use. The HR home page now includes useful quick links, as well as news and announcements. We have added a “search” feature to quickly find information on the HR website, improved our payroll and benefits pages so you can find what you are looking for with a quick overview, and condensed our long list of forms. You can see how the new website is laid out by viewing the site map (http://www.uwgb.edu/hr/sitemap.html). Thank you to Elisa Dowd, Sue Miller, Amy Plotner, and Jon Simonsen for their time and effort to make the HR website better for you!
