UA Human Resources is making changes to streamline operations in an effort to improve internal processes and better serve UA employees.
On July 1, the Division of Human Resources moved under the UA Business Affairs organization. As part of the transition, Allison Vaillancourt assumed a new role as vice president for business affairs and human resources. Helena Rodrigues is now the assistant vice president of human resources.
A new team called HR Solutions, made up of experts in employment, benefits, leaves and retirement, and employee relations, will streamline employee contact with HR.
In the spring semester, Human Resources launched a new website intended to make it easier for employees to find information specific to their roles. HR has continued updating and implementing changes to the site.
A new employee feedback and planning approach called Career Conversations encourages honest, open conversations between UA employees and supervisors.
Finally, a redesigned employee orientation called UA Career Kickoff has been launched. New employees are encouraged to attend a session within the first 30 days of employment.
