You can use short URLs to direct to UBC job postings in eRecruit, for print, web and social media uses.
How to access a short URL for an active posting:
1. Find the job ID, the unique 5-digit identifier on all jobs posted through eRecruit (indicated below in red).
2. Append the 5-digit job ID to one of the following:
http://staffcareers.ubc.ca/ (for staff jobs)
http://facultycareers.ubc.ca/ (for faculty jobs currently posted on UBC’s eRecruit system)
3. Your URL will look like this:
When you enter this URL in a browser window, or click on the URL in an email, you will be taken directly to the job posting page, where users can go through the regular external application process. Internal candidates will need to continue to login to Self-Service to apply for jobs.
If you link to an invalid job ID, or to a posting which has expired, the browser redirects the user back to the Staff Careers page.
If you have any questions or problems using the short URLs, please contact HR Communications.

Calculating the pay for Statutory Holidays (also referred to as Paid Holidays in some employment groups) can be straight-forward for most UBC employees; however, there may be circumstances where more detailed calculations apply, particularly when an employee works part time.
We have put together a guide for administrators to assist you in calculating statutory holiday pay for UBC’s different employment groups. Please download the guide at our Calculating Statutory Holiday Pay page.
If you have any questions, please contact your HR Associate.

A version of this bulletin was sent to HRMS users on Jan. 23, 2017 – see the full bulletin at http://www.hr.ubc.ca/information-systems/2017/01/23/hrms-bulletin-jan-23-2017/.
It is vital that department HR administrators ensure new hires complete their direct deposit form and send it to Payroll as soon as possible before they start work. Even if your employee is only engaged for a short period of time, we need a completed Direct Deposit form.
Payroll cheques will only be produced when direct deposit information is missing, and the cheque will be mailed to the employee’s home address as recorded in their personal contact information in HRMS. This could create a time delay and therefore it is in the best interest of the employee to have a direct deposit set up with payroll at the outset.
Please ensure that any employees who have not yet set up their direct deposit fill out the new Direct Deposit form and deliver it to Payroll as soon as possible.

For those in units with student employees
Upon sharing the results of the Workplace Experiences Survey 2014 (WES), we received feedback from the Board of Governors requesting that we also give student employees the opportunity to comment on their work experience at UBC. As a result, Human Resources and VP Students are collaborating on a pilot project surveying the opinions of undergraduate students on the Vancouver campus.
The goal of the survey is to gather information on how student employees experience the workplace. Information gathered is intended to improve the workplace experience of student employees and complement data collected in WES. Because this is a pilot project, the findings will be shared with a smaller audience of administrative and academic leaders, actions arising are to-be-determined, and consideration of future surveys is out-of-scope.
The regular Undergraduate Experience Survey went live on Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2016. The Survey will include a section on the experiences of student employees, asking questions that resemble those asked in WES.
If you have student employees in your area, please take note that we are asking questions about their experience.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
