During the last year and a half we’ve made many changes in HR in response to feedback we received from you.
We’ve tried to bring our services closer to you and make HR services and programs more accessible and easy to use. Here are some of the major things we’ve done:
Creating an HR generalist program has been one of our biggest projects to date. Our HR generalists are Jeff Artel, Heather Sidman and Denise Stephens. Jeff Artel serves the Computing and Operations Sectors. He has offices in Feynman and in Wilson Hall on 4SW. Heather Sidman provides services for the Accelerator Sector, which includes the Technical Division. She has offices in the AD Cross Gallery and TD ICB 3rd floor. Denise Stephens serves the Particle Physics Sector. She has offices in WH8W and PPD SiDet Lab A. Learn more about our generalists or view their office hours here. All three of them are here for your questions; help with HR issues and suggestions.
As a reminder, you can ask your generalist or your Benefits Office staff about Benefit open enrollment, which begins Nov. 7. In general, please remember that we want to learn from you how we can continue to improve our service to you. Tell your generalists or use our suggestion box. We hope to hear from you soon.
