Enjoy streamlined position management processes with a flexible solution designed for higher education

A transparent, configurable job classification system and quality position frameworks are key to an effective talent management strategy. But cumbersome, paperwork-heavy position management processes can get in the way.

PeopleAdmin’s Positions is purpose-built to streamline these processes, freeing talent management teams, faculty and staff to focus on other critical tasks.

Positions’ highly configurable permissions improve transparency and accountability by helping control who can view and edit position descriptions. The process of editing position descriptions can even be customized to meet the unique needs of each position type, ensuring every update goes through the appropriate approvals and captures the right information.

Integrations between Positions and Hire solutions further simplify and streamline the entire talent management life cycle, empowering teams to refocus attention on other critical tasks.

So efficient.​

​“Positions keeps us going, but also helps us note where we’re being held back. It’s so efficient, I think our departments take it for granted.”​

Promotions and transfers.​

​“Getting rid of outdated processes really put us in a better place. With Positions, managing promotions and transfers is much easier. We’re subject to things like open records and now we can go back and look at the history of a position, transfer or promotion and show exactly what happened.”​

LynnAnn Brewer​
Employment Manager​

Defensible compensation.​

​“Positions helps hiring managers understand who the best candidate might be for the position, which is great because at the end of the day that’s what’s most defensible.”​
