We are happy to introduce our new Office of Human Resources website to the University. Please note that the new web address is www.pdx.edu/hr. The new web site has been reorganized by topics, including the following major headings:
|Employee's Corner||Topics of getting started at PSU, finding forms and policies, information on how to update employee personal information, separating from PSU, resources for retired employees|
|Benefits||Learn about the PSU Benefits programs, who’s eligible, how to enroll, what are the choices, what’s covered under the plans, what to do if an employee needs to take a leave of absence|
||Find the payroll schedule, wage and hour rules for staff, what documentation is needed for international employees and resources for payroll taxes|
||Provides information on performance evaluation procedures, training and development, recruiting and hiring staff, job classification and compensation|
||This section is for our internal and external job applicants to learn about various job openings, qualification requirements, and how to apply.|
You’ll find added information available to employees and managers on topics such as communications and problem-solving; rules around breaks, lunches, and travel pay for our non-exempt (overtime eligible) staff members; position analysis and elements of a job description; new benefits such as Domestic Violence Leave and Lactation breaks. You’ll also find a single location for all HR forms, University policies and our Collective Bargaining Agreements/Contracts.
Please encourage your staff to visit the new website and become familiar with how we have organized the information. If you have suggestions for improving the website further, please don’t hesitate to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see what we can do.
Please note that the site is established in a Saga environment, which runs slow for now. Shortly, we will be among the many department websites to migrate to the new Drupal software adopted by PSU.
