Human Resources discussing updates to several policies

Topics touch on job titles, compensation and more

9/17/2012


DENVER - Changes and updates to personnel policies at the University and for State of Colorado employees are in the works.

CU Denver l Anschutz Medical Campus Human Resources Assistant Vice Chancellor Kevin Jacobs talked about scheduled and proposed personnel policy changes during Friday's Exempt Professional Assembly meeting.

On the list is the 'exempt profession title project.' Jacobs describes this as "an effort to better describe positions such as 'business professional' with more profession-specific titles." The discussions on this topic are looking at the roles and responsibilities. For example, a Senior Business Professional position that exclusively performs human resources work will be changed to Senior Human Resources Professional.

Jacobs also talked about the CU System Compensation Study being implemented to ensure we're aligned with academic peers as well as with the overall labor market. Consulting company AON-Hewitt is serving as an advisor on this project.

Also in the works is a system wide upgrade for the jobs@CU tool. In addition to improvements to the recruiting module, job description, onboarding and performance evaluations processes will be automated.

On personnel matters specific to employees in the State Classified System, Human Resources representatives are keeping an eye on statutory developments related to lay-off rules and  Referendum S which would change constitutional provisions concerning the number of candidates referred for interviews, the length of temporary appointments, residency requirements and number of gubernatorial appointees.

Jacobs said the university will continue to follow these matters and others to understand how they may affect our employees.
