HCM Business and Operations Analyst, Main Campus – Georgetown University

HCM Operations across the Georgetown University’s Main Campus are decentralized. Its HCM Business and Operations Analysts serve four key stakeholder groups: 1) Faculty (TL, NTL, Adjuncts) and Post docs, 2) Staff and AAP, 3) Students (undergraduate, Masters and doctoral) and 4) contingent workers. At present, these stakeholder groups are served by the following offices: 1) Faculty – Main Campus Office of Academic Appointments (MCOAA), 2) Staff and AAP: Various schools, Library and Provost Finance Office, 3) Undergraduate and Master’s students – Office of Student Financial Services, PhD students – Graduate School.

The HCM Business and Operations Analyst brings together these disparate decentralized processes under the Provost Finance Office to provide uniformity in processing, provide economies of scale and manage redundancies and workloads. They serve as a first point of contact for all HCM related transactions for faculty, staff and students; and initiate and monitor overall HCM processes, systems, and procedures across the assigned organizational unit. In a “deadline driven” role, they apply their abilities to multitask and to pay close attention to detail.

The HCM Analyst manages all HCM requirements for more than 500 individual staff, faculty, postdoctoral fellows, students and contingent workers. They maintain accurate and appropriate accounting of salary distributions and integrity of all personnel records, as well as HCM and GMS employment data for one or more moderately sized school/units. The HCM Analyst supports Senior Business administrators or equivalent level staff to assure smooth functioning of HCM operations in schools and departments, interpret human resources policies and procedures, and advise units on implementation.

They apply their knowledge of employing minor workers, paid and unpaid; and provide guidance to managers and supervisors in the use and application of salary ranges and increase guidelines, job evaluation plans, classification of new positions, changes of status, transfers, promotions, performance appraisals, salary review and adjustments, and terminations.

The HCM Analyst executes and implements the standards set by the Director of Human Capital Management Operations in implementing the full-cycle of staff/AAP HR transactions, from recruitment to separation – position description development, recruitment, candidate screening, offer letters, background/reference checks, onboarding/orientation, contract renewals, retirement and terminations, and exit interviews. They are also be responsible for all faculty-related GMS data entry and monitoring.

They are also responsible for data accuracy (e.g., input new hire data, update changes to employee data, and personnel action changes in the system), for assurance that supporting documentation is in compliance with Georgetown University policies, and the reflection in the MC Position Database of keyed transactions in GMS, as appropriate.
