In the inaugural issue of HR Today, we introduced John Whelan, the new associate vice president for Human Resources. John spent much of his first year on a Listening Tour, speaking with staff, faculty and leadership on every campus to better understand their needs.
Based on the findings of this tour, as well as President McRobbie’s challenge to HR to prepare the University for its bicentennial in 2020, Human Resources has identified the three strategic priorities listed below. These are the backbone of the HR2020 strategic initiative which includes the action plan that IU’s HR community is undertaking.
An external consulting firm is administering two surveys related to HR activities and HR services and conducting focus groups with HR employees and customers. The results of the surveys and focus groups will be shared and used to define a 5-year strategy.
A website about the initiative is at HR2020.iu.edu.
