Dear Colleagues –
I’m pleased to announce the launch of the new student employment website: studentwork.unc.edu.
This initiative is the culmination of several months of hard work and collaboration between OHR, campus HR representatives and Operational Excellence.
With more than 12,000 student employees on campus – over a third of Carolina’s workforce – previously there was no central repository of information and resource to answer questions about getting hired, getting paid and working on campus. This site makes it easy for students, supervisors and hiring representatives to access useful information and resources. More specifically:
- For students, the website includes information and resources to find a job, what to do once hired, navigating on the job scenarios, getting paid and leaving a job. The website also includes features such as the new student employee checklist, FAQs and an international student employment guide.
- For supervisors, the website includes resources for hiring, supervising, and paying students as well as information on extending and ending student employment. Additional content includes the supervisor checklist, a guide to approving timecards and resolving paycheck problems and resources to assist in developing and engaging student employees.
- For hiring representatives, the website features information, instructions, and tips on procedures to hire students, managing and modifying student positions and assisting with payroll. Hiring representatives also have access to a hiring representative checklist, resource list to aid in managing student positions and an international student employment guide.
As the Operational Excellence team concludes this initiative, we will be sending out a survey to those involved to solicit feedback on the experience.
Separately, we will have a table at this year’s Employee Appreciation Day. The event is 7:30am to 2:00pm on Friday, October 18th in the Pit and Union. Please feel free to stop by and say hello!
As always, please feel free to share this email with your colleagues. You can also visit our website to learn more about Operational Excellence, read my previous updates, and submit feedback. If you have any questions, please reach out to me at email@example.com. I read every email.
