Human resources works to help unclutter your inbox

Tired of all the listserv emails? So are we.  Human resources and university communications and marketing recently developed new ways to deliver important information to you. The result —a less cluttered email inbox.

We wanted to create consistent methods for communicating with employees as well as improve clarity in the information.  Over the past months, university news and communication edited our memos so that the language is straightforward and easier to read.

We also said goodbye to our use of the many email listservs, which we found to be ineffective.

Look for human resources news in the following new communication platforms:
  • Employee News…Get the Facts —a communication poster distributed monthly and posted near time clocks and in break rooms in buildings where there are employees who do not have access to computers.
  • Working@Miami—a new column appearing each Friday in the employee newsletter Miami Matters, published by university news and communications
  • MyMiami —important issues will also be featured on Miami’s intranet.
  • Trending Now in HR —features up-to-date news regarding events, communications and important dates and is on the human resources website.

W2s now available online

W2s are available online via Bannerweb. However, both the payroll office and the human resources kiosk are set up for employees to access and print W2s from Bannerweb without having to implement Two Factor Authentication.  These are the only two computers that have been granted clearance to bypass this additional security. For all USPS mail requests of W2s please contact the payroll office ( and include your name, the address to which you want your W2 mailed, Banner ID and the last four digits of your SSN.  We cannot email W2s to anyone due to security risks. The payroll office will also print W2s for individuals who come to our office with appropriate ID.
