The University's Department of Human Resources has become the latest major administrative unit to revamp its web site, creating a new, streamlined home page designed with user-friendliness in mind.

The page includes permanent links for job-seekers, U.Va. employees and U.Va. hiring officials, and another labeled "About Human Resources at U.Va." There is also a feature link, which this week offered information about the Aug. 19 New Faculty and Staff Welcome Resource Fair.

  • Job-seekers can find a comprehensive listing of job vacancies, instructions for applying, employee benefits and a snippet of the new employee welcome video.
  • Current employees can access information on benefits, HR policies, faculty and staff councils, foreign travel opportunities and pay plan information.
  • Hiring officials will find links to hiring guides for faculty and staff, personnel policies, new employee orientation resources and payroll deadlines.
  • The "About Human Resources" page includes a welcome from Chief Human Resource Officer Thomas Gausvik, a department directory, and manager and employee communications.

The web site also provides several forms and publications. Human Resources solicits feedback from visitors to the site via a "Feedback for HR" button.
