2019/07/03 – HR Service Delivery Pilot Kicks Off - Human Resources at Ohio State

HR Service Delivery Pilot Kicks Off

On July 1, Ohio State launched a pilot of the new Human Resources operating model through the Enterprise Project’s HRSD Team as part of the university’s broader HR Transformation efforts.

HR professionals from a handful of units across campus will begin learning and adopting the modern technology and optimized processes that will roll out to the entire university community beginning January 2020. The HRSD pilot partners include the Office of Human Resources, College of Arts and Sciences, Office of Student Life and Office of Business and Finance.

The HRSD initiative will significantly further the HR strategic plan through the following outcomes and benefits:

  • A streamlined service model and efficient business processes
  • Clear and consistent job roles/responsibilities for HR professionals
  • Modern technology tools for case management and knowledge base
  • A shared service center to provide high-quality support

Earlier this week, the HRSD team celebrated the selection of ServiceNow as the future HR self-service “help desk,” case management and knowledge base tool. The implementation of ServiceNow is a critical element of the HRSD initiative, as it will increase timely resolution and visibility into the status of service requests. Pilot participants will be guided through how to leverage ServiceNow to better enable HR activities.

Senior Vice President Susan Basso attended the event and acknowledged the strong collaboration required to advance the HRSD initiative to the pilot stage.

“This is a significant milestone for HR, and I am most excited about the work we’re doing. We have a stellar group of people contributing to the success of the service delivery model in conjunction with our new ServiceNow tool,” said Basso. “I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our partners.”

HRSD pilot efforts will continue to build in the coming months as other components are added to reflect the future employee experience. Please contact enterprise-project@osu.edu with additional questions.

HR FOCUS

Career Roadmap current focus on cross-unit consistency, title recommendations

When launched in 2021, Career Roadmap will introduce a job catalog, pay ranges and career path visibility for Ohio State staff. The next phase in development is working to ensure consistent position mapping across all colleges and units.

Weather-related resources and closing reminders

With winter upon us, it’s important to be aware of the university’s weather-related resources and policy, and know how to check the university’s status. Although Ohio State strives to remain open, faculty and staff can be prepared by reviewing this policy and taking note of the resources.

Employees to benefit from clear paths to HR support

The adoption of a new HR Service Delivery model across campus and the Wexner Medical Center is a key effort in delivering consistent, high-quality services and a cornerstone initiative of Ohio State’s HR Transformation efforts.

Forming the HR Shared Service Center

On Monday, September 9, HR colleagues participating in the HR Service Delivery (HRSD) pilot moved to the Office of Human Resources (OHR) location at South Campus Gateway, hitting a milestone in the development of the center, newly named HR Connection. Pilot partners celebrated their new office space with a welcome event.
