Next Steps We are working with UFIT to develop a file based system to assist in the implementation of the new classification system. This approach would allow us to map all of our existing positions to the new classification system. HRS would implement the new job titles by job family or administrative structure. HRS would evaluate the proposed job title based on the position description currently contained within position management.
Next Steps As of Monday, there are 949 active positions that do not have a position description in position management. Over the coming weeks, Classification & Compensation will begin working with college and department HR contacts to update missing position descriptions.
