VPHR Staff Titles and Shared Service Center Undergo Change - 07/8/10

Earlier this month, Vice President for Human Resources Luis Lewin requested a study to review position and functional area titles in the VPHR organization. With 102 positions and 57 different titles, the goal was to reduce the current number of titles to just a few.

Effective immediately, new titles will include: manager, administrator, specialist, coordinator and assistant. Assistant director titles are being looked at in an ongoing assessment.

Another change affecting the VPHR organization is the new name of the Shared Service Center (SSC), which is now known as the Human Resources Service Center (HRSC). The name change was made to reflect the HR services provided and to position the service center for future enhancements with a focus on providing responsive customer service according to established best practices. This change is broad, and HRSC is working to make updates to web pages and informational materials. The plan is to have all updates completed by the end of July.
