The Common Human Resources System (CHRS) is a single employment system for all 23 campuses in the California State University (CSU) system. The rollout of CHRS is currently in progress, with Stanislaus State and Fullerton being selected as Wave 1 campuses, the first to implement the new system. To learn about CHRS, please visit our campus CHRS website.

Yes and no. CHRS Recruiting is part of CHRS (Common Human Resources System), which includes both the consolidated PeopleSoft system (CHRS) and the CHRS Recruiting system, built within PageUp. CHRS Recruiting was the first module of CHRS (Common Human Resources System) to be implemented. When we refer to CHRS, we are referring to the PeopleSoft system. We will always say CHRS Recruiting when referring to PageUp. CHRS Recruiting focuses on position recruitment and onboarding of new employees. CHRS focuses on other employment related processes and tasks. CHRS Recruiting has already been implemented on our campus and will not be going away.

No. The new system will have a different URL so even if your favorites did come over they would not work. In addition, the new system will be a new version of PeopleSoft so the names and locations of pages will likely be different.

Yes. A new ID will be assigned in the CHRS system, which will be displayed on various pages in the system, including CSU ID Search, Job Data, etc.

In order for all campuses to be in the same system the numbering will need to be redone. It was not possible in the design to append current IDs with a campus code to distinguish between duplicate ID numbers.

No. You will continue to log into Stanislaus State systems, including CHRS, with your Stanislaus State and DUO credentials.

Yes. The process to add and edit favorites is slightly different in CHRS, but you will definitely be able to add your favorite pages.

While some basic functionality will be similar to the current Stanislaus State processes, many pages and processes will be different. Details on specific changes will be shared on the CHRS website and as part of the training materials provided at go live.

No. CHRS is a different version of PeopleSoft so the overall look and feel will be slightly different. Navigation will be similar but most of it will be different from what you do now. The CHRS Navigation video displays the new look and feel of the CHRS interface.

Yes. This will be part of the overall training plan that the CHRS Project Team rolls out.

No. The MyStanState Student Center system will not change. You will continue to manage class rosters and grading through that system.

Likely not. As technology improves and systems are modified to make processes and functions more user-friendly, updates and upgrades need to occur. It is also critical to upgrade systems in order to get the best support from our vendors. Additional functionality and system enhancements not developed prior to our campus go live will be rolled out as more campuses switch over to CHRS (PeopleSoft 9.2).

The Chancellor's Office requires all CSU campuses to make this change. Moving to a consolidated environment will ensure consistency in process and reporting between campuses and will also allow the Chancellor's Office to pull data directly from the system instead of asking every campus to submit the information. Once all campuses are in the consolidated environment, we anticipate financial savings due to the reduced number of databases the system pays for, and reduced expense when doing upgrades to the system.

First off, our current PeopleSoft 9.0 environment is no longer supported. With CHRS we will be upgrading to the latest cloud-based technology. The new system has custom modifications specifically built for the CSU. Moving all campuses to a consolidated environment will ensure consistency in process and reporting between campuses and will also allow the Chancellor's Office to pull data directly from the system. Once all campuses are in the consolidated environment, we anticipate financial savings from maintenance and upgrades due to the reduced number of databases across the CSU, Please visit our campus CHRS About website to watch a short video to learn more about the benefits of CHRS.

Please visit our CHRS Project team page to view a list of CHRS project team members. Email a member of the project team with your questions and we will be happy to respond. Prior to going live with the new system we will be communicating to the campus information about training resources and open labs where you will be able to drop in for help from the project team.

The processes in academic departments will be vastly different, so the majority of the PeopleSoft HR work will change. For those in non-academic departments, the work will not change as much since most of what is done is looking at data or running reports. Staff in central offices like Human Resources and Faculty Affairs will experience a higher level of change but much of the work will be the same.

The new version of PeopleSoft (9.2) does have an improved user interface. We believe it will be easier to navigate, especially for self-service functions.

For many employees, the primary impact will be the change to self-service functions like entering/approving time and absences, updating personal data, etc. For those who use the system for more than self-service, the impacts will be greater depending on your role. These changes are being communicated to those individuals/groups impacted.

Student employees will continue entering their time in the new system in a similar manner. The look and feel is different but the process is almost identical to what you do now. This does not change anything you do in MyStanState.

Faculty will primarily use the system for self-service functions like updating personal data and entering/approving time and absences. Temporary academic faculty and students will also view and accept their appointments in the system. Academic Affairs support staff will enter appointment data directly into the PeopleSoft Temporary Academic Employment module and College/Department Deans, Chairs & Directors will process approvals of these appointments in the same module.

There are a few changes associated with CSU ID Search that users of the system will experience. Only employees will be retrieved in searches, as opposed to now when students are also listed in the search results. Clicking on the "Details" link the page retrieved will be a summary of information only. This is a change from what is displayed now. The CHRS ID will be displayed in the results, not the Campus ID, and the SSN and DOB may be masked depending on your access.

Yes, especially for self-service functions.
