    Webinar on Disrupting the HR Model: What Happens When You Blow Up the Old Way of Working?

    The University of California, Irvine (UCI) HR department has undertaken a significant transformation by unifying disparate HR units and elevating the visibility and leadership of HR to the chancellor level to provide more disciplined, strategic services. These changes respect the differences across three unique business enterprises—medical center, health affairs and campus—and include a think tank partnership that works across the three units on initiatives that support the university's strategic goals, address issues, and implement programs and applications that are changing the way UCI staff members work. In this webinar, the speakers shared how individual units were reorganized to help solve problems at an enterprise level and the single service center that is the result of centralizing the three HR units to provide more shared, consolidated services.
