Who We Are - UVA Human Resources

The UVA Human Resources Organization

UVA HR exists so that people, teams, and organizations can do their best work everyday. Each member of UVA HR works in our organization because we care about helping our faculty, staff and team members. Whether it be benefits counseling through important life changes, recruiting more medical professionals to help team members with patient care, or provide clear instructions on COVID vaccinations and testing, our goal is to provide the best possible support so we all work in a productive and positive environment. John Kosky, Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer

UVA HR Service Delivery Model

communities of expertise

The UVA HR service delivery model represents how HR services are delivered to those we serve – you and those in the UVA community. This model keeps our customers at the center, setting you up for success and delivering consistent, exceptional service across the entire UVA organization. The HR service delivery model is organized into three communities of expertise.
