Welcome George Petrie!

The Office of Human Resources is delighted to announce that George Petrie has been appointed into the position of HR Talent Partner effective Monday, May 13, 2024. George’s role will serve as a trusted advisor and facilitator to an assigned group of colleges and departments to provide consultative and transactional HR support and services relevant to the entire career lifecycle. George has a degree in Organizational Communication/Human Resources from UW-Eau Claire, and brings extensive human resources experience from his previous work with Schneider National, St. Norbert College, Renco Machine Company, and Professional Plating. We are thrilled that he has joined our HR team!

The Office of Human Resources is currently engaged in a planned staffing transition to develop a true HR Talent Partner model across UW-Green Bay.  This model will:

    • Align roles within the HR Office with the functionality of Workday (which will be implemented in July, 2025);
    • Integrate HR more naturally within college/divisions across UW-Green Bay to provide talent support and collaboration; and
    • Ensure that HR can best serve as an impactful partner with employees, managers, and leadership, guiding employees throughout their careers and meeting the needs of UW-Green Bay in areas such as business analytics and talent strategy.

We expect to fully implement the model later in the summer, and are looking forward to providing more information to the institutional community in the coming months!
