We recently kicked off a project to migrate our SJSU @ Work system (PeopleSoft HR) to the CSU’s Common Human Resources System (CHRS). SJSU completed the first phase of CHRS in July of 2020 when we went live with CHRS Recruiting. We are now moving into the second phase of the larger CHRS project and will be the third campus in the CSU to do so. Over the next several years, the remaining campuses, as well as the Chancellor’s Office, will move to CHRS for recruiting, employee data processing and reporting. SJSU plans to go live with CHRS in July of 2022.

CHRS was designed to facilitate common business practices and processing throughout the CSU. In addition, implementing a common system provides an opportunity for better and more thorough reporting by the Chancellor’s Office.

We encourage you to watch this video to understand why the CSU is implementing CHRS.

CHRS manages all aspects of an employee’s records at SJSU including position, job and personal data; temporary academic employment; student employment; benefits; time and absence data; and more.

A few functions will be changing significantly; some of these include:
  • Temporary Academic Employment Processing (replacing Temporary Faculty Contracts and adding more functionality)
  • Benefits Self Service
  • Time & Labor Self Service
New functions will also be implemented:
  • Transactional Front End (replacing current transactional forms such as the Employee Profile and Appointment Form)
  • New Reporting Tool (similar to a data warehouse)

Project information and FAQs can be found on our CHRS at SJSU webpage. From this page you can join the CHRS User Group to receive email updates about the project.

Additional information can be found on the Chancellor’s Office CHRS website  (requires SJSUOne login).
