You may have seen several emails in the past few months regarding CHRS Recruiting, the new tool for faculty and staff recruitments. Staff members in University Personnel, along with a number of other employees on campus, have been working on implementing this new system since December 2019 with the anticipated go-live later this year. As we move forward we wanted to provide a few updates.
First, this new tool will be used by many employees on campus but not necessarily everyone. Those most impacted are:
- Individuals who initiate and support recruitments – typically department/college administrative staff, department chairs and/or managers
- Search committee chairs and committee members of tenure-track and temporary faculty recruitments, as well as staff and MPP recruitments
- Hiring managers
Second, a message went out in March announcing an overview session for CHRS Recruiting as well as numerous training sessions. Unfortunately, due to current events, the April 15th overview session has been cancelled. Once more is known about the coming weeks and months, it will be rescheduled either in-person or remotely via Zoom.
You may still register for the training sessions announced in the prior message but there is a possibility that some of the dates will change. We are also exploring how to remotely deliver these training sessions. The current schedule of classes can be viewed in SJSU @ Work – Click Search by Course Number, enter “CHRS”, then click Search.
The previously announced Change Management for Managers course on April 7th was cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date.
Finally, our plan is to continue moving forward with the implementation of this new tool and get you the training and support you need. We will adjust our timeline as needed while continuing to adapt to the changing environment around us.
We appreciate your patience and flexibility and will update you regularly as we move forward. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our CHRS Recruiting team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
