Raising the bar in HR: UMHS HR team undergoes transformation

January 27, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Announcements,

UMHS is transforming its human resources to improve the way we support and engage the extraordinary people who work across our organization.  The team has transitioned to a high-impact HR model that is focused on aligning its services to the mission and goals of the academic medical center. These changes primarily involve several interconnected improvements that include:

  • The implementation of a new HR Solutions Center (HRSC), which launched on Jan. 25, that provides employees and leaders with a centralized resource and solutions to HR questions about compensation, employment, medical leaves, and more!

Employees can call 734-647-5538 Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., to speak to an HR Solutions Center Specialist who is dedicated to providing friendly, reliable, and timely solutions to their HR needs.

  • Standardizing processes in an effort to maximize value and efficiency.  HRSC leaders will be partnering with customers in departments across the academic medical center to determine key areas of focus and streamlining those processes in support of being ONE with the UMHS community.  Some examples include medical leaves, employment processes, and compensation administration.
  • A corresponding redeployment of HR professionals who are focused on attracting, developing, and deploying the best talent, being great coaches and advisors, and strategic partners to our management teams, and the voice for our employees.

HR Business Partners (HRBPs) are assigned to each department and will work closely with leaders to provide strategy on key priorities like attracting, developing and deploying the best talent, provide coaching and support to identify and address work environment issues, and collaborate to ensure alignment with departmental goals and metrics.

Networks of Expertise are comprised of professionals who have unique insights and great depth in HR practice areas around people, performance, and organization. These areas include Compensation,   HR Strategy, Labor Relations, Payroll, and Performance Learning and Development, and will work closely with HRBPs and the HRSC team to provide support to departments.
