Human Capital Services

Transition guide

Navigation quick reference

The Human Capital Services navigation is a topic-based menu with a targeted tools tab for resources specific to managers, supervisors and liaisons. Our usability testing showed that topic-based menus work best for all the audiences the HCS website serves.

The drop down menus for each navigation tab link several top topics in each area and include a link to the full set of information for that topic. Drop downs help by providing either a quick link or a general sense of the topic area without becoming an overwhelming all-inclusive list.

Homepage features

We think of the home page as our "store front." We want you to know what's new (news), what's current/important (highlights on initiatives), and to share how we can better serve you.


Find links to current initiatives and timely information. This content will be here for a few weeks and change as we share initiative updates or new initiatives are launched.


Find current news from HCS including letters from the V.P., notices for employees regarding benefits and payroll, and other HCS news. These articles will be published in K-State Today and found here as a news feed.


Find current events including lectures, training, and professional development on campus.

What else

And don't forget the homepage links in the left navigation that give you quick access to the staff directory, HCS initiatives, policies and forms.
