TRAM Update

TRAM Implementation Complete by August

The TRAM (Time Reporting & Absence Management) implementation is currently close to sixty percent complete for the UH System.  The final phases will wrap up by the end of August giving the UH System a closer auditing of time and absence for all employees.  The HR team along with partners from IT want to thank our business administrators and all employees that have worked with us to make this transition successful.  If your group has not transitioned to TRAM yet it will take place over the next three months and you will be notified for training and other detailed information.


The Human Resources Team is here to assist you with all your HR needs.  In an effort to serve you better, please use the Customer Service Center as your start point when coming to HR.  All appointment check-ins, information inquiries and employment document finalizations should start at the Customer Service Center in 325 McElhinney, located as you exit the elevator on the 3rd floor. Representatives will assist you directly or make sure you are directed to the right person.
