Staff HR Services

Staff HR Services serves the university, its management and diverse staffs in the development, implementation, interpretation and administration of human resources policies, procedures, practices and external regulations related to labor/staff relations, salary administration, compensation and classification, recruiting and employment, and overall University Human Resources functions. We provide leadership and education in identification and resolution of concerns related to the management of the university.

We always respect the dignity of staff while representing the best interest of the University of Michigan.

Staff HR Services provides advice and assistance in human resource matters affecting primary staff, as well as bargained-for groups, and university organizations. Advice and assistance are guided by the Standard Practice Guide and the Regents Bylaws.
