A Message from the Associate Vice President
2015-2016 was an exciting year in Human Resources.
We continued our partnership with the campus in establishing CSUN as a destination workplace by assisting in the recruitment and hiring of a record 700+ positions, for which we received more than 30,000 applications. To enhance the end users' experience and facilitate the on-boarding of these new employees, improvements were made to our new employee sign-in process. In addition, we rolled out a new system-wide policy on the background check process to help prevent risk and provide protection to campus employees, students, volunteers, and guests.
The 2015-2016 Professional/Personal Development program continued collaborations across campus to provide programming geared toward the campus' planning priorities. In addition, we offered many new program opportunities that focused on personal wellness and work-life balance. In June, we celebrated the campus' 50th Annual Staff Service Awards event and honored over 310 employees, who combined represent more than 4,200 years of committed service to the University.
A team of over 40 strong, we remain committed to supportive people practices and work thoughtfully and respectfully in every situation to provide information and support, and to find sustainable solutions for our colleagues.
As leader of this great team, I look forward to working with all academic and administrative units to lead the enhancement of Human Resources services in ways that support your goals. Together, we will continue to create an outstanding work environment for all employees - one which surpasses the environment of the day before. We will continue to work proactively to ensure our people practices are congruent with the University’s mission, vision, and culture. We will continue challenging our practices and policies to reflect an evolving community of supportive, successful individuals, all of whom are valuable members of the Matador community.
We appreciate the opportunity to assist you.
