About CHRS Recruiting

As of January 2022, all 23 CSU campuses and the Chancellor’s Office have successfully transitioned to CHRS Recruiting.

Here’s a short video celebrating all the campus teams!

CHRS Recruiting helps our University to attract, hire and onboard talented faculty, staff and student workers in a more effective way. Discover the benefits of CHRS Recruiting in the video below.

CHRS Recruiting is the first piece of the Common Human Resources System (CHRS).

Recruitment | Onboarding | Analytics
  • Handles all categories of recruiting: all types of faculty, administrators, staff and student workers in a secure environment
  • Offers a paperless way to perform most functions within recruiting, from posting a job to onboarding new employees
  • Automates workflow and integrates with the main PeopleSoft human resources system to streamline functions and increase recruitment efficiencies
  • Provides valuable analytics to help campuses make informed decisions
Benefits of CHRS Recruiting
  • Approvals can move faster without waiting for papers to be routed around, thanks to electronic workflow.
  • Manual workload can decrease since data will automatically upload from PeopleSoft, rather than doing double entry.
  • Applying for a job is easier and more attractive with features such as resume parsing and application via mobile devices.
  • Onboarding new employees can be streamlined by using a centralized system including electronic checklists to track the onboarding process.
  • Security and data integrity can be improved because papers are not being routed. Employees are granted access based on the roles they perform.
  • Systemwide reporting can be easier and faster
