Ufirst Update: A Recap of What's New and Upcoming

The Ufirst Project team continues to work hard to improve the way HR is experienced at UVA. The key in all of their recent activities has been focusing on the UVA community and gathering insights from subject matter resources (SMRs), a group of more than 150 people representing all areas:

  • Hosting Workday Initial Design Sessions: the Ufirst Technology team and UVA SMRs have been meeting with the system implementer to discuss system requirements.
  • Collecting insights of another SMR group on the topics of talent management, recruitment, employee relations, and more.
  • Meeting with HR professionals and SMRs from all areas to address the Human Resources Business Partner design.
  • Conducting a customer feedback and engagement survey to determine the needs of HR professionals and customers.
You can read more about current efforts on the Ufirst website. Check out the latest news, sign up for the Ufirst newsletter, and much more.

You’re also invited to attend the Ufirst Information Fair on Thursday, May 9, from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm (come and go). Attendees will be able to view a demonstration of the new, cloud-based technology, learn more about future-state services, position descriptions, and organizational chart, and much more.

UVAFinance has three Ufirst area representatives who are happy to answer your questions and direct you to more information: UVAFinance HR Consultant Ashley Feero, Voice of the Customer Lynne Schwar, and Change Champion Brandi Van Ormer).
