A Human Resource Advisory Council (HRAC) is annually appointed by HR. The members are as follows: HR Director as Chair, Associate HR Director as Secretary; one member from each of the Schools, and one member each from Advancement, Student Services, Financial Administration, Enrollment Services and Information Services. The Advisory Council meets monthly for the purpose of discussing HR issues.
The HR office maintains a file of the employment records of each employee. These records are property of Andrews University and may include pre and/or post hiring documentation, service records, written reports of periodic performance reviews and other documents, all of which are assembled to form an accurate account of employment experience with Andrews University. To keep personal records current, the supervisor and the HR office should be notified of any change in name, marital status, address, telephone number, dependents, or other pertinent information. A Record or your years of service is kept at the HR office. This is used in calculating retirement benefits. You are encouraged to periodically request a copy of your service record to verify its accuracy.
Suggestions to improve office operations, reduce expenses and improve policy are welcomed and appreciated. Please pass along any suggestions to the HR Director.
