Determining Staffing Needs

Staff planning helps you run your department efficiently. Determining and planning your staff needs in advance, rather than waiting until a vacancy occurs, will help you achieve these results. Campus positions may be limited, career, or contract (see HCM Appointment Types to determine when to use each type of appointment).

New Positions:

All new positions, including temporary positions, must be classified before recruitment. See Chapter 3: Classification.

Replacement Positions:

Unless the position has substantially changed qualifications or responsibilities, replacement positions do not need to be submitted for reclassification. Proceed with requesting departmental approval for recruitment.
