June 2017 Human Resources Updates

June 6, 2017
Dear Faculty and Staff,
The start of summer is a great time to engage with wellness offerings and healthy lifestyle activities offered by HR. This month, I encourage you to participate in our new “Get Fit” program and Chicago’s annual Bike Commuter Challenge. For additional details on these programs, as well as other programs, services, and events, see below.
Careers @ Loyola University Chicago
Upgrades to our employment applicant system, PeopleAdmin, located at Careers.LUC.edu are live. Users will find comprehensive enhancements; updates include an expanded user-friendly interface, simple and intuitive navigation, and helpful tools for search committees and applicant reviewers (i.e. robust reporting and audit functionality). Additional details for hiring managers and applicants are available here.
Walking Works— Loyola’s “Get Fit” Program
Loyola’s “Get Fit” program kicked off yesterday, June 5. Faculty and staff are invited to track physical activity and receive online support and motivation to live a healthy, active lifestyle. The program runs through July 14. Don’t forget participation can be tracked for the Wellness Program, too. Staff and faculty enrolled in Loyola’s medical plan who earn 100 points per quarter can receive $75 on their paychecks following each quarter. See the Wellness Program page for details.
Bike Commuter Challenge
Join the 26th annual citywide Bike Commuter Challenge taking place June 16–30. Events are scheduled around Chicago throughout the challenge, including the Bike Week Rally downtown on June 16 and Rock the Rooftop, a networking event, happening June 23.
No matter what role you hold at Loyola, you can find a program that increases your knowledge and strengthens your professional skills through EMERGE. Space is still available for the “Preventing Harassment” course at the Lake Shore Campus on Thursday, June 8. Visit LUC.edu/emerge for registration information.
Transamerica Retirement Solutions
If you participate in the Loyola Defined Contribution Retirement Plan (DCRP), please log in to your account and review your contact information, including the beneficiary designation, as many participants have not designated a contact. This is important; in the event of an employee’s death, the designation determines next steps in processing a retirement account payout.
If you have questions regarding any of these updates, please visit LUC.edu/hr.
