SuccessFactors and the Purdue Hiring Process

There are several roles in the recruitment module, allowing for flexibility in the recruiting process. The initiator is often a supervisor or an administrative assistant in the department. Both positions have the initiator role. In the quick hire processes, the same person can initiate the requisition to post the position, review candidate information, determine the new hire and move them through onboarding. Other processes, such as faculty recruitment, utilize several roles. Your HR –Talent Acquisition team can help you determine the right roles. Your business office and/or payroll center can help you understand budget approvers and more.
