HR Service Centre, which includes the Help Desk, is responsible for analyzing, processing and advising on HR processes, forms, employment categories and anomalous appointments. We also provide client training on VIP and UM Careers. The HR Help Desk provides frontline service to a wide client base of administrators, employees and applicants.

HR Business Systems is responsible for developing, implementing and maintaining new and enhanced system features for VIP (including ESS), UM Careers and other HR applications which support the operational needs of the university. We also handle system access, report development and analyzing and processing requests for information.
