On Feb. 14, Human Resources officially launched Cornerstone, a new online talent management system that will help improve efficiencies throughout the recruitment, hiring and onboarding process.

“On behalf of the entire Human Resources team, I want to thank the many individuals across multiple departments who were patient, provided guidance, and worked long hours to help us launch Cornerstone,” said Wendy Davis, associate vice president and chief human resource officer.

It collectively took hundreds of hours to start this new tool, and the University hopes to continue refining and expanding Cornerstone’s functionality in coming months to ensure a great user experience, she added.

Cornerstone has replaced PeopleAdmin at UT and is being used to hire new employees and manage internal position changes. Banner will continue being used to complete changes to current positions, including pay raises, labor distribution, and extension of work dates.

“Cornerstone has many benefits. It’s more user-friendly, intuitive, and better engages job applicants, as well as UT staff who are instrumental in screening, hiring and onboarding top candidates for positions across all of our campuses,” said David Gaus, director for compensation, human resource information systems and project management.

“It’s a very efficient platform to attract top talent, archive resumés and manage all the other HR-associated documents using iCloud-based solutions,” he added.

To assist business managers, department administrators, hiring managers and administrative support staff with transitioning to Cornerstone, open labs are being offered daily through Tuesday, Feb. 26, from 9 to 10 a.m. in Human Resources on Scott Park Campus.
