Hiring Toolkit

The success of our University is in large part built around on our ability to hire great talent into our community. Successful, inclusive search processes require planning, patience, and intentionality. The benefits of an effective recruitment and selection process include a strong, diverse pool of applicants, accurate qualification screenings, proactive strategic alignment with university and department goals, reduced turnover, positive morale, and a fair and equitable process.

This toolkit will assist hiring managers and other stakeholders with logistical and strategic guidance, tools, and best practices to advance understanding of the UR recruitment and hiring process. For all recruitment and hiring, managers are encouraged to partner with their Talent Acquisition Specialist (TAS) to ensure that appropriate processes and procedures are followed and that all related transactions are completed in a timely manner.

The University has made progress towards becoming a more diverse, welcoming, and inclusive community. However, we know that hard work remains in order for us to align our actions with our highest aspirations. We must work together to build institutional capacity and our own individual capability in order to shape our culture, and to cultivate a thriving and inclusive environment that advances our University’s mission.
