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