University Personnel System (UPS) Overview Forum

UPS

What is the University Personnel System (UPS)?
• The structure used to recruit, appoint, pay, provide benefits to, and manage personnel matters for all UW employees.
What is prompting this change?
• Governor Walker signed executive order 36.115 authorizing and directing development of personnel systems separate from the current structure under the Office of State Employment Relations (OSER) in 2011. The initial order was to be implemented July 1, 2013, but in June 2013 a motion was passed to postpone implementation until July 1, 2015.
Have further questions? Need to be “brought up to speed”? Are you interested in getting involved? Now is the time!
The Office of Human Resources in collaboration with the Academic Staff and University Staff committees will be hosting an informational “catch up” session for UPS. Please click on the attached meeting request to add this forum to your calendar.

When: Thursday, March 5, 2015; 3 – 4 p.m.
Where: Christie Theatre, University Union
Please review the UW-Green Bay UPS webpage and the UW System UPS webpage for further information.
