“We recruit, hire, train and support the region’s best and brightest faculty and staff.”
Since joining TU almost a year ago, I have had many candid discussions with faculty, staff and key decision makers about the services and support the Office of Human Resources (OHR) provides to the campus, how we can improve our services and support and how we can deliver them with more insight and efficiency.
As a result of those discussions and giving consideration to “best practices” for HR departments throughout higher education, we are changing and improving how we operate and support faculty and staff across the University.
I am pleased to announce that the Office of Human Resources is changing the way we do business. The biggest change in the realignment of our organization structure is the creation of four (4) new positions referred to as HR partners. These positions will become a single point of contact (an HR partner) for each department that should result in better availability, accessibility and response from the OHR.
The partner will function as a consultative resource to faculty and staff providing guidance and support for HR issues/challenges which will also ensure more consistency across the University.
In addition to establishing the HR partner role, we also made the following changes;
At the start of the year we invite you to join us for an OHR Open House where you can meet your HR team in person, tour our redesigned offices and find out how we can best support your HR needs. You will receive more information in the coming weeks about our date and time for the Open House.
Thanks to everyone who has shared feedback and guided us through this realignment. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
