Get to Know Human Resources

Have you noticed the Human Resources website has a new look. A team of staff members representing each area of HR recently redesigned the site using the university’s new web template. The goal of the redesign was to put the focus on you, the faculty and staff members who rely on the information provided.

You are encouraged to visit and explore the new navigation and resources.

To help you get to know the new site, you are invited to participate in a “Get to Know HR” promotion. Each Thursday morning on the front page of the HR site, there will be a hint pointing to a piece of information located on the site. You will find a Scotty dog hidden on the page where the information is located. The first person to find Scotty and send email to with the link to the correct page will get a reward.

Winners may choose from a list of CMU-themed items, or may opt for a “Get to Know HR” opportunity. Winners are encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities to get familiar with the programs and services HR offers, including:

  • A personalized benefits overview with a Benefits Specialist;
  • A confidential career coaching session including résumé and cover letter review and interview tips; and
  • A “CMU Through the Years” lunch to discuss how CMU has changed over the years with long-serving staff member Everett Tademy.

Visit to see this week’s hint.
