AVC Corner: UHR’s 2019-20 Annual Report

Dear colleagues,

I am proud to share with you the University Human Resources 2019-20 annual report. The report is a comprehensive overview of UHR’s accomplishments during the 2019-20 fiscal year.

This is the second annual report published by UHR, after the inaugural report in 2020. That report followed the publication of UHR’s 2018-21 strategic plan, an ambitious effort to transform the HR operations at the university.

We promised to keep you informed about our progress during our transformational journey. Our annual reports serve as our progress reports to campus. The reports also present the accomplishments of our HR campus partners. Please take some time to read these reports, especially our latest one, and provide feedback at hrcommunications@ncsu.edu.

I would like to thank the UHR team members for their tireless efforts to reach our goals for the 2019-20 fiscal year, despite the extraordinary challenges they faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and our HR campus partners for their support. We’ve devoted one section of the 2019-20 report to detailing how UHR has responded to the university’s extensive and diverse HR needs during the pandemic.

You also can read about the following in the report:

  • A project launched by the Onboarding Center to help campus partners develop and enhance onboarding programs.
  • An update on a UHR-led initiative to enhance the faculty hiring and recruitment process at NC State.
  • The implementation of a parental leave program at the university.
  • How UHR and its campus partners are working to create a culture of wellness at NC State.

UHR will soon begin work on our next annual report and is diligently working on many other projects we will announce in the future. One of those projects is an online performance management system that will automate some of the manual processes related to the performance management process. I look forward to my staff launching this project, and I believe it will be highly beneficial to campus. The system is scheduled to be launched in 2022.

UHR also will develop its next strategic plan once the university’s new strategic plan has been fully developed and launched. The university’s strategic priorities are being updated as part of the development of a new 10-year strategic plan. Please visit the Strategic Planning website for the latest updates on that plan.

Thank you for continuing to support our university and the UHR transformation.

Best regards,

Marie Williams
Associate Vice Chancellor for Human Resources
