  1. Nov. 21, 2017Pop-up HR

    Do you have HR questions? We have answers. This month, we’re conducting a pilot for our Pop-up HR initiative. Pop-up HR will allow us to provide a better experience to University employees by setting up somewhere on campus and being available to answer HR questions on-site. This initiative is a direct result of feedback we’ve received from campus through the HR Satisfaction Survey and focus groups.
