“Our new HR model breaks all the molds. We are moving – at a rapid pace – towards a model that serves clients first, that leverages the strengths of every HR team member, and that values differences within a structure that aligns efforts towards common goals. Our three distinct service units – UCI Health, campus and health sciences – are now better able to service their unique sets of clients. Our three units maintain their separate cultures, but at the same time, they are working toward the advancement of UCI as a whole.

The path to the launch of this new model was only possible through the strategic collaboration and innovative thought processes of HR professionals at every level of our organization. The willingness of our HR team to create a better UCI experience for the clients we serve was instrumental in the success of our new reality. Today is only the beginning. Rest assured – there are great things coming.”
