Position Management and Reporting Center Key Topics of August HR Stars’ Meeting

More than 80 people participated in-person and online at the HR Stars meeting on Aug. 26 on the Twin Cities campus. The Stars are a key advance team of more than 100 HR professionals throughout the five system campuses that was organized by the Office of Human Resources to provide valuable leadership, insight, and advice regarding the upgrade of the Human Resources Management System, as well as the larger Enterprise Systems Upgrade Program. The Stars convene monthly and serve as important resources within their units.
During its meeting, the group heard a presentation about the new Position Management capability that will be part of the HRMS upgrade to PeopleSoft 9.2, which plans to go live in April 2015*. Among the data collected in Position Management will be position number, job title, salary plan, supervisor, supervisees, and other information. According to Lori Mein, business process owner in the Office of Human Resources, Position Management is the “heart” of the HRMS.
“Everything starts with, and follows, Position, and it is essential to many HRMS functions,” Mein said. “Position management makes automated approvals, workflows, and data updates possible.”

The Stars also benefited from a demonstration of the new Reporting Center that will be part of the Enterprise Systems Upgrade Program. University faculty and staff will access the center through the new MyU portal and be a catalog of reports from multiple sources like UM Reports, UM Analytics, and PeopleSoft in one location. Amy Winkel and Amy Schult, from the Reporting and Data Management team, led the discussion and answered questions.

The Stars’ meeting was led by the group’s new co-facilitators, Teri Spillers, from the Office of Human Resources, and Carrie Meyer of the Controller’s Office. Kathy Brown, Vice President for Human Resources, kicked off the meeting and thanked the group for sharing information about the upgrade within their units.
