Marshall University is implementing a new human resources software tool called PeopleAdmin to provide help and support for both current and potential employees.

The software is designed to make hiring processes faster and more efficient; it also has the capability to assist with managing positions, onboarding new employees and evaluating employee performance.

Matt Turner, Marshall chief of staff, said Marshall’s administration is excited at the possibilities of the new addition.

“Our goal is to help us recruit and retain the best employees–both faculty and staff–that we can,” Turner said. “This software is designed to help us do that.”

The project will be all electronic and has been in the development stages since last October. It will be rolled out in two major phases, the first one, which will help remind applicants and departments of deadlines and other requirements for hire, coming out this November.

The second phase, which will debut in January, will involve the addition of modules for performance and position management.

Marshall and its affiliates–Marshall Health and the Marshall University Research Corporation, will use the PeopleAdmin software.

Michelle Douglas, director of human resource services, said faculty and staff would receive help and support throughout the duration of the project implantation.

“Faculty and staff users will receive extensive training as part of the “Go Live” stage of implementation,” Douglas said. “We will also receive continuous technical support from PeopleAdmin as part of our contract.”

PeopleAdmin, the company behind the software, specializes in talent management solutions for higher education–they have more than 600 higher education clients.
