Human Resources recently created the Total Rewards Operations Center
(TROC), which is evolving from a merger between Payroll, Benefits and
Wellness, and HR Administration and Technology. We believe this merger
will drive much-needed synergies and efficiencies, and will help
eliminate gaps between our shared operations.
Total Rewards will drive much of the Human Resources operations. By
integrating Payroll into the Human Resources business model, we are
improving communications between these closely related functions and
exploring areas to streamline and improve our current processes and
services. All Human Resources functions and team members will continue
to work together to create a cohesive unit and provide all GVSU
employees with a world-class experience.
Since the "Transforming
the Employee Recruitment Process" event in late February,
Human Resources has been working diligently with campus partners to
develop a new hiring process that will decrease the amount of time
from application to hire by 50%. The new process is structured into
three stages and consists of specific steps in each stage. We are
excited to announce the anticipated launch date for the new hiring
process is late May.
Before the official launch, we invite you to review the new process
via the Recruitment
Process webpage. Additional standardized operating procedures
and tools will be added to the webpage over time.
During the last week in February 2022, the Human Resources team and
colleagues from across campus evaluated the GVSU recruitment process
utilizing Lean improvement methodologies. During this deeply engaging
process, they dug in to explore and evaluate the hiring processes for
faculty, administrative professional staff and hourly employees. Every
step from the Hiring Approval Form to an acceptance offer was
reimagined to ensure consistency and efficiency across the university.
On the final day of the event, there was a reveal of what they came up
with and how GVSU will move forward.
