HR - Add or Maintain a Person of Interest (POI)


This document describes adding a Person of Interest (POI) to HRS. A Person of Interest record is used for individuals who have an affiliation with a UW Campus but are not considered employees, are not paid, and do not need reimbursement of expenses by the institution. These may include consultants, emeritus faculty, Non-UW Time Approvers for Time and Labor (T&L), Non-UW Interviewers, or other individuals requiring an affiliation with a UW institution other than employer-employee.



Add a POI:

  1. Navigate to Workforce Administration > Personal Information > Add a Person. “NEW” appears in the Person ID field. 

  2. If a Person ID was found in EPM, change “NEW” in the Person ID field to the Empl ID found in EPM. The HRS system will assign the Person ID number as the Employee ID. Click Add Person.
