On Thursday, Feb. 14, The University of Toledo will launch a new online applicant hiring system called Cornerstone. This new system is more intuitive, efficient, and will help make the recruitment and hiring process more user-friendly.

Cornerstone will be used for all new hire and internal position changes.

Extended time for applicants to apply: As Human Resources prepares for the conversion to Cornerstone, PeopleAdmin will remain active. Human Resources will continue to post new job vacancies while still allowing applicants to apply to currently posted and open positions through Thursday, Feb. 14.

“We’re very pleased to offer this new system to everyone who manages their department’s hiring process,” said Wendy Davis, associate vice president and chief human resources officer.

“Additionally, our new Cornerstone webpages will better engage job seekers, which is important in attracting the best talent to the University.”

Please note the following:

• Blackout dates are no longer necessary — HR will post new job vacancy requests in PeopleAdmin through Feb. 14. Any job vacancy requests sent to HR in the last few weeks will be posted and made available online through PeopleAdmin.

• Applicants can still apply — Applicants will still be able to apply for all currently open faculty and staff vacancies in PeopleAdmin through Thursday, Feb. 14.

• New position control number requests — New position control number requests can be processed via a web form located on the UT HR website.

• Cornerstone launch date and time — HR will launch Cornerstone Thursday, Feb. 14, around noon.

Human Resources is offering a series of Cornerstone computer-based training sessions for applicant recruitment and onboarding in order to enhance users’ learning experience. Business managers, department administrators, administrative support staff and hiring managers are encouraged to sign up to attend a session titled Introduction to Cornerstone. Sessions are being held on Health Science Campus and Main Campus. To register, visit the Human Resources’ website to view dates, times and session locations, then complete and submit the form to reserve a seat.

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited due to the number of computers available in each training session. Additional training dates will be added as needed.
