When the Guide to Managing Human Resources was first created in 1991, many members of the campus community participated in the process. The Employee Relations Unit in Central Human Resources took the lead for the project. Contributors included staff from the Berkeley Campus Personnel Office; the Staff Equity and Diversity Services; Environment, Health & Safety; University Health Services; the Title IX Coordinator; Student Employment; and the Behavior Risk Assessment Team. It was distributed to the campus in early spring 1994.

Focus groups from the campus at different levels of management/supervision provided input at all stages of the preparation. 

Members of the Coalition of Staff Organizations, ABOG/BASBOG, the Chancellor's Staff Advisory Committee, the Black Faculty and Staff Organization, and the Berkeley Staff Assembly also received briefings and made contributions.

The Guide is no longer issued in a print version, but the online version continues to be updated as needed.

If you have suggestions for updates, or you see that corrections may need to be made, please send the information to the Employee Relations Unit by email to
