Human Capital Services Strategic Initiatives

Committed to continuous improvements, the strategic initiatives identified represent our desire to move closer to achieving the goals outlined in our K-State 2025 Strategic Plan. Many of these goals will have a direct impact on the campus community while others will have an internal, HCS focus. 


HRIS Upgrade

The HRIS Upgrade will impact the culture and environment of K-State by empowering employees to become better stewards of resources. Upgrading to PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital 9.2 will further allow K-State to: stay compliant on tax and regulatory compliance; fix critical functional issues; and apply critical security, as well as provide advanced support to all users.

Competency Model and Career Ladders

The competency model will help to develop career ladders to support vertical and horizontal career movement. Career paths are the center piece of an effective talent management system. By aligning talent management processes and providing linkage between job roles, desired competencies, and key experiences, career paths lead employees toward the university mission.

Holistic Onboarding

The Holistic Onboarding Program will acclimate new employees to K-State's culture and environment, supporting and addressing the needs of the "whole" person. Creating a comprehensive new employee program designed to welcome new employees to K-State, will enhance and streamline the onboarding experience, impacting new employees, faculty and staff across campus.
