Employee Workforce Groups


UAB is a complex organization with diverse responsibilities among its 23,000 employees, so it is necessary that some policies, processes and programs apply differently to various entities and academic/administrative and clinical business lines. At times decisions affecting the workforces of these operations must be made independently. In order to improve communication during these times, UAB has formalized the classification of these workforces as Workgroup A, Workgroup C and Faculty.

Every employee is assigned to either the A, C or Faculty workgroup based on their area of work. Information that affects workforces individually will be communicated using these classifications in appropriate UAB outlets.
