Supervisor Information

Enterprise Directory - Supervisor Option

Human Resources and Computing & Communications are developing a suite of applications that will require a supervisor designation for staff employees. To prepare for this requirement the Enterprise Directory has been updated to allow Enterprise Directory Administrators to designate primary and secondary supervisor entries.

To assist Enterprise Directory Administrators with recording Supervisor information, the following "Supervisor Definition" has been approved by UCR's Human Resources department. If additional information is required in recording a supervisor entry, Enterprise Directory Administrators should request guidance from their SAA.

Supervisor Definition

A supervisor is the person regularly assigned responsibility for evaluating employee performance and for providing day to day work assignments.

Note! This definition is solely for the purpose of recording Supervisors within the Enterprise Directory. This nomenclature does not alter the campus definition of a supervisor.   Additional information is available in the Supplemental Guides for Supervisor Classes.
