Chancellor Lesa Roe held her quarterly UNT World Town Hall  on September 19 in the new Student Center at UNT Dallas. UNT World Town Halls are held each quarter to help keep you informed and to provide an opportunity to ask the Chancellor – and other UNT System leaders – work-related questions.

This quarter’s moderated discussion included a look at where UNT System Administration is headed in Fiscal Year 2020. Dr. Barbara Abercrombie, Vice Chancellor for Organizational Effectiveness & Chief Human Capital Officer, provided updates on our Best Place to Work efforts and shared new career development opportunities from HR's Organizational Development & Engagement (ODE) team. Paul Corliss, Chief Communications Officer for the UNT System, moderated the discussion and provided communications updates.

Comprehensive Compensation Study

HR will soon kick off a comprehensive compensation study to review current market positioning for employee salaries,  pay plans and job evaluation methodology. The project will focus on evaluation of staff salaries for UNT, UNT Dallas, UNT HSC and UNT System Administration, as well as faculty salaries for UNT Dallas and UNT HSC.
HR will be partnering with a world-class organization to undertake this project with an anticipated conclusion date of Summer 2020. The RFP process is near finalization and our partner organization will be announced soon.

Upgrades to PeopleAdmin

We are updating PeopleAdmin, which is the system used for faculty and staff recruiting across UNT World, as well as for our student employment recruiting at UNT Dallas. There are currently four instances of PeopleAdmin implemented across UNT World that are not cost-effective or operationally-efficient and we are going to change that.
In addition to updating Applicant Tracking, we purchased three additional modules – Position (Description) Management (which will contain all staff job descriptions), Onboarding (which will replace our current version) and Performance Management (which will replace our current staff evaluation processes). We are implementing Position (Description) Management and Applicant Tracking first. We have a cross-functional team building the system based on feedback from users and expect these elements to go live before the end of the calendar year.
In the end, we will have one system for all of UNT World and all four modules will provide an improved user experience for applicants, hiring managers and end users. The upgrade will be cloud-based and mobile optimized. Look for additional announcements soon.
