HR Projects

CHRS stands for the Common Human ​Resources System.

CHRS is a single Human Resources data management system for all 23 campuses in the CSU, plus the Chancellor's Office.

It includes upgrading to the latest version of PeopleSoft and adding custom modifications that will make it work for every campus in the CSU. 

With one system, there will be consistent technology across all campuses, and they will perform processes in the same way.​

The Case for Change

The 23 CSU campuses and the Chancellors Office currently operate an inefficient, disjointed Human Resource system (HRMS). CHRS is a collaborative effort by all 23 campuses to create a singular HRMS as well as standardize business processes. This effort includes "upgrading to the latest version of the PeopleSoft HR application and providing a consistent baseline of technology. In addition, the program will deliver a shared HR data warehouse that will be centrally developed and maintained, will include a core set of analytic tools (dashboards and reports), and will provide a data source for local campus data warehouses. 

CHRS will have many valuable benefits for the overall system and the campuses, including:

  • Access to the most current version of software available, which includes significant added new functionality;
  • Allows for more rapid deployment of new system functionality;
  • Common business practices across the campuses to provide administrative efficiencies and reduce modifications to the system;
  • Enhanced reporting and analytics at the campus and system levels;
  • Improved user experiences in the HR applications, including enabling future mobile access to HR services and improved recruiting and on-boarding capabilities; 
  • Alignment with the upgrade of the Campus Solutions (student system) that must take place.
  • Positions the CSU to consider cloud-based or other technology platforms in the future.
