Educated Choices: Meet the University HR Service Team

Whether your employment at Stanford just started or you’ve been here for 20+years, we know life evolves and the experiences you encounter may require added support. To better assist faculty, staff and retirees in navigating through important life-event changes, University Human Resources launched the University HR Service Team, an on-site team of benefits specialists.

The University HR Service Team is now located at the Stanford Redwood City campus.

In addition to health, life and retirement, the University HR Service Team will support benefits such as tuition & training programs and leave services, providing one-stop for all employment-related issues.

Some examples of how the University HR Service Team may support you, include:

  • Electing or updating health benefits, including questions regarding Stanford’s health plans or support to resolve issues with your plan provider.
  • Planning for retirement, including assistance with Stanford’s retirement savings programs and enrolling in retiree medical benefits.
  • Preparing for parenthood, as well as understanding the maternity or paternity leave process, benefits and the resources available to you as a parent.
  • Going to school or developing your career, including questions about tuition and training programs.              

“Employment benefits are personal in nature, and oftentimes support requires caring, one-on-one assistance,” said Steve Holoien, Senior Director of HR Shared Services. “Bringing the University HR Service Team to campus not only provides personalized service, but improves the overall employment experience at Stanford. If you are newly hired into a benefits-eligible position, expanding your family or planning to retire from the university, you can trust that you are working with a team of experts who understand not only the benefits, but are themselves Stanford employees, ready to assist you with your unique situation.”    

The University HR Service Team is located on the Stanford Redwood City campus, and is available Monday through Friday, 8am – 5pm PT. On-site appointments are by appointment only.
