UC ANR is fast approaching the launch of UCPath. We are scheduled to go live in March, when we'll join seven other UC locations using the long-awaited human resources, payroll and benefits technology that is modernizing how we do business across the University of California. On Tuesday, January 29, I hope you will join me at 1 p.m. for the online Town Hall to discuss upcoming changes.
UCPath will allow us to streamline and standardize our payroll, benefits and human resources processes, and will provide more efficient and improved service to UC ANR employees. UC ANR's fiscal silos will be unified, improving our ability to access our financial data. It will give us improved tools for efficient hiring and management of personnel transactions. Supervisors and employees will have better access to information through new self-service web portals, and will be supported by a new customer service center, the UCPath Center in Riverside.
As we launch UCPath, we should be reminded that major change is often difficult to implement, and we may experience challenges along the way. Our project team is working closely with other UC locations and the UCPath Center to prepare to support UC ANR through the transition. Be assured that the UCPath team, both at UC ANR and at the UCPath Center, will work to resolve any issues that you may encounter.
You'll receive more information about the changes in the coming weeks. I strongly encourage everyone to take some time to learn what's happening by reading project updates and viewing demonstration videos at ucpath.ucanr.edu, and sending any questions to UCPath@ucanr.edu.
Thanks for your support and all you do for UC ANR.
