UC Riverside consolidates HR functions

The University of California will build a system-wide personnel and payroll service centre for all 10 campuses and five medical schools at UC Riverside. It hopes to save $100 million a year, eventually, from the change, the San Francisco Business Times reports.

Though hiring and other functions will stay at individual campuses, there will be job reductions over time as work is shifted to the new centre, called UC Path, which could someday employ more than 500 people.

According to UC executive VP Nathan Bostrom, the centre will consolidate routine payroll, benefits and workforce administration currently spread throughout the individual campuses in one place by October 2014, North County Times writes.

UC Path will be up and running by July 2013, initially handling payroll and other administrative functions for UCLA, the Ronald Reagan UCLA-Medical Center, UC Santa Cruz, UC Merced and the UC Office of the President.

Over the next year, 140 to 160 people will be hired to staff the UC Path Center, and eventually, 600 people will on board, according to university officials.
