Creating the Cardinal at Work website was an opportunity for UHR to enhance the employee experience at Stanford. Our primary focus was consolidating and reorganizing content from 12 employee websites into a single online destination.
Now, faculty, staff and retirees can access information about benefits and rewards, career development, management, and connection opportunities in one convenient location.
