Do you have a knack for coming up with catchy, memorable names for new products?

Human Resources wants your help naming the new recruitment management system it is implementing this spring, and the grand prize is a $500 Amazon.ca gift card for the winning entry.

“The naming contest is a fun way to engage the Queen’s community about the new system that will streamline the recruitment process,” says Marie Doherty, Director of Client Services in Queen’s Human Resources and the project owner. “We are excited to see the creative ideas people come up with.”

The new system will support the university’s commitment to attracting highly skilled staff. Hiring managers will be able to focus on selecting the best talent in a timely and professional manner, as the new online system makes the hiring process more efficient.

Furthermore, candidates will now have the opportunity to identify if they are a member of an equity-seeking group, which will help Queen’s make further progress on its employment equity commitments.

Contest closes March 19

The contest is now open to people who have a valid queensu.ca email address. Queen’s community members can submit multiple entries before the March 19 deadline. If more than one person submits the winning entry, the individual who submitted the suggestion first will receive the prize.

To submit your entry, please complete the online submission form. You may be asked to log in with your Queen’s NetID to enter the contest.

Testing and training coming

The project team is currently working to implement the new system. In three weeks, a select group of users, representing many stakeholder groups from across the university, will test the system. Based on the feedback from those sessions, along with Njoyn, the vendor, will adjust the system to ensure it meets the needs of users across campus. The project team is also developing a training plan, and the details will be shared closer to the launch of the system.
