Human Capital Management (HCM)

Human Capital Management (HCM) is the name of our human resources information system, used for managing employee records and entering personnel transactions for all UC Berkeley staff, academic, and student appointments. The recruiting component, called Talent Acquisition Manager (TAM), is also used for managing staff job postings and recruitment and for academic case tracking. Visit HCM for more information.

System Access

Request an HCM Logon ID using SARA, indicating which HCM role and department(s) you may administer. Your manager and Control Unit must approve your request online. The approved request is routed to the HR Security Administrator, who will process your request and email you when your Logon ID is activated. (Note that your access will not be activated until you have completed any required training). A CalNet ID is required to sign into HCM. Visit the Calnet website for more information.
