Human Resources and Payroll Project


HR Training

The Division of Human Resources has made training and employee readiness a top priority. Twenty-four HR professionals attended three days of hands-on training led by the Division's HR Systems Trainer, and they are now training and supporting their HR colleagues. These trainers represent the entire university system; they are from Columbia, all three comprehensive campuses, Palmetto College and the two Schools of Medicine. See below for a list of trainers with their assigned units.
