The Institution Human Resources (HR) Administrator calls are set up to provide institutions timely HR policy and operational updates as well as provide a chance for institutions to network.

The calls are biweekly at 1 p.m. Thursday of the payroll calculation week. The agendas include both policy and operational topics from all areas – Human Resources, Payroll and Benefits. Every other call includes time for networking and/or process improvement discussions among campuses.

Agenda and slides are typically distributed by the end of the day Wednesday prior to the Thursday call. This helps institutions decide who should be on the call and coordinate as needed. Meeting invites with call in details are sent for easy meeting access.

If you have a networking or process improvement topic you would like discussed during a call email with the topic you would like to discuss on a future call.

Past meeting slides can be accessed on the UW-Shared Services, Service Operations website in the HR Administration section under Support the Call Slide Archive.
