The ASLS division is pleased to announce the launch of a case management system for the Human Resources department. AskHR will assist HR staff in acting on faculty and staff questions and requests while logging and managing our responses in a timely manner.
The system will help us identify areas where we may need to provide additional support, enhanced communication or training.We are asking for your help in making this a success. If you have an HR-related question, there are three options:
• The online AskHR submission form. When completed the form will be routed to the appropriate HR employee for assistance. You can access the AskHR system through the Human Resources home page.
• Telephone: 715-232-2149
• Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Be prepared to provide:
• Your full name
• Your eight-digit employee ID number on your earnings statement, not on your ID
• Your phone number and email address
• Your department name
• As much detail as possible about your issue
Once the request is logged and receives a case number, it will be assigned to one of our HR specialists and an email will be sent to the customer verifying the request. HR will strive to reply to inquiries as soon as possible.
When an inquiry, request or problem has been resolved, the system will generate a survey link that will allow for immediate feedback on our service. We hope this customer service approach will further strengthen our ability to serve the campus.
We believe the new system will promote efficiency and expediency. It will help us manage our resources more efficiently by identifying areas that would benefit from backup and cross-training.

As most of you are aware, the University and those who have been represented by a Labor Union no longer follow the letter(s) of collective bargaining agreements. This represents change for Administration, Supervisors and employees alike. Because we no longer have individual contracts and provisions, it’s been very important to address the many topics and employment actions impacted, including, but not limited to: Overtime Approval and Scheduling, Vacation Scheduling, Transfer Procedures, and Grievance Procedures. Click here to view updated guidance on the above changes.
Through its 2011-13 biennial budget, the State of Wisconsin authorized and directed the University of Wisconsin System to develop two distinct new personnel systems:
• One for all UW-Madison Employees
• One for all other UW System employees
These new systems are to be implemented on July 1, 2013. For more information select here.
The Talent Acquisition Manager (TAM) will not only transform the way people apply for unclassified openings, but also revolutionize employee recruitment and hiring processes by enabling electronic routing and approvals, saving time, and reducing the use of paper. This will be done by streamlining and modernizing current processes.
TAM brings a variety of new opportunities to the University of Wisconsin System. Some of these include:
W-2 statements are now available in the MyUW Portal under the 'Tax Statements' tab in the 'Payroll Information' module. W-2 paper copies will be mailed by January 31, 2012. For security purposes, the W-2 statement on the MyUW Portal does not have employee's social security number on the form. The paper copy being mailed will have employee's social security number on the form. For a comprehensive explanation of the 2011 W-2 form, including the value that corresponds to each box on the form, we encourage you to visit this link: https://uwservice.wisc.edu/docs/publications/tax-w2-explanation.pdf. For further information, please contact Human Resources.
TAM will be rolled out to all UW campuses to be used as the core recruiting system for Unclassified recruitments and if needed, LTE recruitments. It will improve the way all UW campuses post position openings, take applicant materials, and provide aids for the hiring process. This new process will not only benefit the applicant, but also greatly improve the way new hires are entered into the system. More information regarding TAM will be coming soon!
