CHRS Recruiting Solution Guiding Principles 

The following guiding principles have been set for by CSU HR leadership and agreed upon by the CHRS Recruiting Module Team Leads:

  1. Provide a paperless end-to-end, recruiting process; (from the initial “Request for Hire” to the “Manage Hire process”).
  2. Provide standardized recruiting processes and practices where possible, but allow maximum, flexible campus options to support campus specific business needs and campus branding
  3. Develop comprehensive recruiting requirements to support both staff and faculty functions.
  4. Engage stakeholders. Stakeholder engagement and inclusion is a critical component of the CSU culture to ensure buy-in, adoption and ownership of the recruiting solution by our campuses.
