Acting on Results

UWHR Heard You!

In response to survey results, here are a few of the improvements UWHR is pursuing: 
  • Rolling out additional services such as providing individual appointments for retirement planning and producing web-based on-demand benefits seminars.
  • Reducing response times and enhancing recruitment support by completing a “Lean” type process improvement exercise, distributing customer service focused surveys around pain points, and developing a new recruitment support model for campus.
  • Providing training on corrective action and performance management and also clarifying the review and approval process for corrective action.
  • Using feedback from Professional and Organizational Development course evaluations and other channels to learn what training could be offered to better serve clients’ needs. 
These changes should benefit customers and campus partners by:  
  • Reducing turnaround times for questions or requests related to benefits, corrective actions and recruitment.
  • Reducing confusion related to recruitment processes.
  • Providing access to training opportunities that are more attuned to campus needs.
