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.
