Great Place: HR Redesign

VCU’s Great Place Initiative has brought forth the Great Place: HR Redesign, which will be effective, January 2018. In order to share news and information regarding the upcoming changes that VCU will undergo, a website has been created for VCU employees’ use. The Great Place: HR Redesign website will allow you to track the project’s progress, offer your input, and submit questions you may have, directly to the HR Redesign team.

The HR Redesign website also offers, “truth-o-meter” and “rumor mill” pages, which help to clarify uncertain speculations about the project. We strongly encourage you to visit the website in order to view the up-to-date information being shared. We are excited to be supporting more modern HR practices which will be implemented through VCU’s HR Redesign, we hope you are too! You can also follow working@vcu on Facebook or Twitter for project updates as well.

HR policy open for comment!

The Great Place: HR Redesign draft policy is now open for university comment through Friday, March 17. The draft policy addresses career advancement, career development, networking and mentoring, performance evaluation, merit pay and enhanced leave programs. Visit the HR Redesign website to review and submit feedback.

appleGet your 2016 W-2 statement online!
Log on at http://my.vcu.edu and click "eServices/VCU Self Service." Then click the "Employee" and "Tax Forms, Electronic W-2 Earnings Statement" tabs and follow the instructions. You will be required to give your eConsent first. Consent remains in effect until revoked by the employee. Once eW2s are available, which is always sooner than paper mailing, employees can view and print free copies at any time.

Employees expecting to receive a paper W-2 statement should ensure their USA permanent home address is up to date in eServices/VCU Self Service for timely receipt of this important tax-filing document.

For help in accessing eServices/VCU Self Service, contact VCU Technology Services at (804) 828-2227 or helpIT@vcu.edu.
