HR Community Circle

The HR Users Group is transforming into the HR Community Circle as Ufirst works to better meet your professional needs around communication and collaboration. The purpose of the group is to share information on HR operations to enable and empower all members of our UVA HR Community.


Meetings will serve to:

  • Implement robust communications for the HR community, including emails as well as informative meeting agendas

  • Share up-to-date information regarding operational issues, upcoming events, and pending changes to HR-related work

  • Provide a feedback mechanism to S3 and HR leadership

  • Provide a pre-meeting workshop with foundational knowledge for new and early-to HR members, anyone seeking contextual understanding or needing a refresher

  • A 60 minute pre-meeting foundational workshop is open to everyone, followed by a 60 meeting. Workshop content and meeting agendas will be published on this site prior to each meeting.

Agenda items will include:

  • Relevant business operational items based on University schedule and/or on UVA HR Calendar

  • Implementation of HR processes based on new or revised policy or legislative initiatives
