How HCM and CU Careers work together

Integration means simplified position creation

Using HCM and CU Careers, creating job descriptions will center on selection of duty statements, competencies, qualifications, training requirements and other additional position requirements. The Non-Person Profile is the basis of what will become our Job Descriptions.

Non-Person Profiles compile information from a variety of sources:

  • HCM provides Position Data and Training Data (HIPAA, Hazardous Material);
  • Kenexa provides job matches and competencies;
  • CU Careers provides job summaries, duty statements and other information about posted positions.

Transaction pages let us create the position and the profile on the same page, so the Manager/HCM Department User/HR will not have to navigate to different pages. They enable automatic transactions between integrated systems. This means less data entry for everyone involved. Driving human resources by position lets us define specific attributes of various positions and then move workers in and out of those positions.
