 Human Resources & Payroll Assistance

Valerie Crow oversees human resources related tasks for the Campus Controller's Office.

Team supervisors and managers play a vital role in each part of CCO's HR processes. Checklists and guides on each of the following topics are available in our Guidance for Supervisors which is available on CCO's shared drive under Resource > HR-related Resources.

  • Hiring - Filling a vacant position, creating a new position, recruiting, onboarding setup
  • Accepting a resignation and retirements

All HR transactions are managed by the CU Boulder Human Resources Service Center (HRSC). Their support services include: MyLeave, timesheets, payroll and more. Valerie Crow is CCO's single point of contact to the HRSC for the East Campus 

Need help? Related questions should be directed to your supervisor. If unresolved, Valerie Crow will assist supervisors and staff. She will also contact the HRSC on your behalf, if needed.
