The Agile Recruiting and Onboarding (ARO) project officially formed in April 2016 as “an initiative to strengthen hiring, recruiting and onboarding processes and systems.” The ARO project will be implementing PageUp People, a modern and efficient applicant tracking and onboarding system. Careers @ MSU will be the name of the new website for applying; there will be internal and external versions of the site. New features include a variety of filters to search postings, the ability to upload a CV/resume to prefill portions of the application, the ability to apply to postings from a tablet or mobile device, and many more.The planned outcomes of these changes include the following:
- Automate candidate evaluation and selection
- Address time it takes to fill positions
- Deliver more robust system functionality
- Improve processes with fewer manual steps
- Offer new onboarding tools
- Enhance reporting measures and metrics
- Improve applicant experience
Overview Roadshows will be open to MSU employees interested in learning more about the ARO project and the new systems. Topics include a project overview, system roles and features, and the applicant experience. Visit the ARO Training and Education page for more information.
ARO will go-live on Wednesday, April 26. For more information and for answers to some frequently asked questions, visit ARO FAQs.
