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!
