What To Expect in the Coming Weeks:

In the upcoming months we will continue to expand our interaction with stakeholders in the following areas:

  • Go-live preparations: Share key system implementation dates and provide information that will enable departments to plan operationally for system implementation, e.g., data validation and training opportunities.
  • The Change Champion Network will be engaged to enhance stakeholder engagement and communication between the project team and U of G faculty and staff. Stay tuned for opportunities to preview the new system, ask questions, and attend training.

We are excited to share more information with you in the coming months and appreciate your continued support and collaboration for the HRMS project. Should you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to reach out to Shane Robinson, Organizational Change Management Lead at
