Patsy Alejado joins HR’s team of Business Partners
Patsy Alejado joined UCOP’s team of HR Business Partners in December, assuming responsibility for Budget and Capital Resources, the Business Operations Immediate Office, the Chief Financial Officer Division, Health Sciences and Services, Human Resources and the Treasurer’s Office.
She brings with her a master’s degree in organizational management and a more than 20-year career in human resources — including experience with HSBC Bank, Wells Fargo, DHL Worldwide and Kaiser Permanente.
By late January Alejado had just completed a series of “meet-and-greets” with her client departments, gathering the information she needs to help meet their needs in the areas of talent management, policy interpretation, human behavior and workplace change. When you’re dealing with people, she says, there is no such thing as a “cookie-cutter approach.”
The HR Business Partners are assigned by department to provide guidance and support to all managers, supervisors and employees regarding UCOP Local Human Resources services. HR’s other Business Partners and their client departments include:
- Venus Kirk, HR Business Partner: Academic Affairs Immediate Office; Academic Personnel; Academic Planning, Programs and Coordination; Academic Senate; Agriculture and Natural Resources; Education Partnerships; Institutional Research; President’s Executive Office; Research and Graduate Studies and Student Affairs
- Michael Lum, Acting HR Contact: Laboratory Management, Office of the General Counsel and Secretary and Chief of Staff to the Regents
- Annette Mora, HR Business Partner: Ethics, Compliance and Audit Services; External Relations; and Information Resources and Communications
The contact information on the local HR website, providing contact information for all UCOP business partners, has been updated to reflect these and other recent changes.
