Elevate your knowledge. Elevate your skills. HCM Campus Workshops begin in July

We’re almost ready to roll out new tools and programs that will make your job a little easier, and we’re inviting you to get a sneak peek of them at HCM Campus Workshops this summer.

As part of its two-year Elevate project, CU will upgrade its existing Human Resources Management System with the new-and-improved Human Capital Management (HCM) system. The HCM team will also unveil a powerful new recruiting tool called CU Careers (currently Jobs at CU).

To help HCM Community Members get up to speed on these changes, Employee Services will offer HCM Campus Workshops starting July 7 running through the fall. These courses will be offered on each campus and at the System Administration building.

What you’ll learn

Workshops will cover different aspects of HCM procedures and workflows through in-person lectures and demonstrations. Later this fall, you can sharpen your skills at structured and open labs, and have your questions answered by HCM experts. Each workshop lasts two hours.

  • HCM Overview | July 7-21 | Review similarities and differences between the HRMS and HCM.
  • Non-Person Profiles | July 22-Aug. 4 | Learn about important changes to positions, job descriptions and position profiles.
  • CU Careers | Aug. 5-18 | Understand system workflow for recruitment processes in CU Careers and HCM.
  • HCM Transactions | Aug. 19-Sept. 1 | Understand system workflow for promotions, terminations, funding changes and other processes.
  • Paying People | Sept. 3-16 | Discover a streamlined process for paying employees.
  • HCM Review and Reports | Sept. 17-30 | Review the HCM system and learn more about forms, reports, and pulling data. 
  • Structured Labs | Oct. 1-29 | Experiment using HCM in real-life scenarios and workflows during these hands-on labs.
  • Open Labs | Nov. 3-Dec. 3 | Ask HCM experts how to resolve day-to-day issues.

After you finish the workshops and labs, you’ll have the option to take a cumulative assessment to identify areas where you excel and where you can improve. To see a full workshop schedule, visit
