HR - Student Template Hire - HR Approval (Manage Hires)


HR Representatives will receive potential student hire information through the Student Smart HR Template Hire workflow from institutional department representatives. Prior to the hire approval, HR Staff will need to check HRS for potential matches before adding the person and hiring them into a Job. Whether the person is new or currently in HRS determines if the action of the HR Representative will be Add New Person / Hire OR Add an Employment Instance OR Rehire.

HR Staff will also review all Personal and Hiring/Job Data and correct, if necessary. HR Staff will have the ability to deny/reject hires. These will appear on the Student Template Hire Status that the institutional department representatives will be monitoring.
