A new plan that will redesign the human resources system at UW-Madison will be officially announced on Sept. 21, according to a timeline released at a university governance meeting Monday.
The new design project aims to create an updated and more efficient personnel system through changes to staff benefits, compensation and recruitment.
Work first began on the proposal in August 2011 and the final plan will be subject to approval by the Faculty Senate, Academic Staff Assembly and Board of Regents before moving to the state legislature.
Looking forward, Academic Staff Executive Committee Chair Jeff Shokler said he is not expecting any “showstoppers” because of the Staff’s involvement throughout the planning process, but he is anxious about the short time the assembly has to form a proper response to the plan.
The assembly will take a final vote on the plan in their October meeting.
