HR at Aarhus University contributes to the university’s core activities by supporting and developing AU’s organisational efficiency and effectiveness through the university’s employees, organisation and culture. HR is organised into different administration centres and the central administration.
In the administration centres, HR partners and HR supporters are responsible for the day-to-day running of the HR area in relation to, among other things, recruitment, salaries, sickness, leaves of absence, employee retention, development and resignations, as well as for offering advisory services and guidance to the deans, the department heads and other heads of staff.
AU HR in the central administration performs tasks for all faculties, departments and centres and consists of four specialised units: Payroll, HR IT, Employment Law as well as Development and Working Environment. AU HR also offers advisory services and guidance for the HR departments in the four administration centres.
