Here are some comments from employees who participated in the Bellin Run on Saturday, June 10th:

  • The Bellin Run was a blast, as always!
  • Nice weather – warm, but not too warm in morning with a nice breeze.
  • The corral start went much quicker this year. This was really nice since it was going to be warm as the day went on.

Michael Holstead finished the run with the quickest time of our team.  Team Captain, Sam Goeller, is shown in the red tank top with My Team Triumph providing race support to a participant with a disability.  Donna Mleziva is shown in the starting corral area, and Kimberly Vlies and her sister got some fun pics with Green Bay Packer players (shown with Davon House).  Great job team!

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. At UW-Green Bay, students reported overall positive perceptions of the school climate in dealing with sexual harassment and working toward assault prevention, response and treatment, although University officials acknowledged that there is always room for improvement.

The university maintains a Sexual Misconduct Policy along with a dedicated Title IX and Clery website devoted to resources related to these areas.

For more information on sexual assault prevention and treatment among the student population, please see the Inside UW-Green Bay News Article.

Couch to 10K – Bellin Run Lunch ‘n Learn held on April 5th

BellinRunBThank you to Nate Vandervest, Running Coach with Bellin and UW-Green Bay alumni, for presenting a very interesting and helpful lunch ‘n learn on Couch to 10K – Bellin Run, on April 5th!

He showed us the Bellin Run training plan, which includes a calendar outlining runs and walks of varying length and intensity leading up to June 10th (Bellin Run).  Please click on the following link to view the training plan: http://bellinrun.com/uploads/bellin/BR17_TrainingGuide.pdf  Surprisingly, he said that most people train too hard, which can not only cause injuries, but also increase the amount of time it takes for your body to get ready for the race.  Rest days (as shown on the training plan) are very important, and actually help your body.BellinRunA

Nate also discussed common running-related injuries and how to prevent them.  We shared some past injuries we or our family members incurred.  He explained why the injuries happened, and how we can help our bodies heal and avoid future injuries.

If you would like to participate in the Bellin Run as part of the UW-Green Bay team, there is still time!  Please sign up by May 1st: https://blog.uwgb.edu/hr/2017/02/bellin-run/

Human Resources System (HRS) Outage Started February 22, 2017 Employee Access Is Affected

Employees do not have access to their online timesheet, earnings statements and other related documents and services during a UW Human Resources System (HRS) outage that started on February 22, 2017 at noon. This outage will continue until a to be determined time on Monday, February 27.

The following self-service features that employees access through the MyUW portals, will be unavailable during the outage:

  • Online timesheet
  • Absence reporting
  • Web Clock
  • Benefits Self-service (‘e-Benefits’)
  • Updates to personal information
  • Access to electronic earnings statements, tax statements (W-2, 1042-S, etc.), leave statements and other HR, Payroll and Benefits documents.

The rest of the portal, with the exception of the HRS System related features and documents, will be available during the HRS outage.

Once the HRS System is upgraded, employees will experience the same functionality that they are currently accustomed to. The upgrade will have minimal impact on system users.

The HRS System manages UW Human Resources, Payroll and Benefits processing for all UW System institutions.  The system is currently running on PeopleSoft’s Human Capital Management software version 9.0. The upgrade will move the system to version 9.2.
