Human capital services
Kansas State University's most important asset to its long-term viability and credibility is its faculty and staff. Strategic development and transformative leadership are keys to centralizing and developing an efficient, effective and integrated human resource processes and services that take the development of our faulty and staff— our human capital — to a higher level.
Meeting the university's evolving human capital needs ensures the continued recruitment, retention and development of a diverse and highly skilled workforce that advances our vision and goals for K-State 2025.
As part of its ongoing efforts, K-State completed a university-wide human capital services assessment in fall 2013 with the help of Aon Hewitt, a national consulting service firm. The assessment evaluated the capacity and readiness of the K-State's university-wide human resources, equal employment opportunity — or EEO — and related Title XI structures.
As part of the assessment, Aon Hewitt was asked to identify improvements and recommend a roadmap with associated costs to maximize the efficiency, effectiveness and responsiveness of the university's human capital services and its ability to support faculty, unclassified professionals and classified staff needs.
The areas of focus for this assessment include the distribution of human resource-related functions and responsibilities; position definition and job analysis; compensation structures; discrimination and accommodation services; recruitment and hiring practices; professional development; recognition and awards; performance review; policy development; compliance; and information technology infrastructure supporting human capital processes, as well as communication of all human capital services.
